Dear Ranchers, I want to make a Media Organizer which allows a user to edit his music file details as one of the features. For that I need to know how to access those details (like Title, Artist, Genre). I went through Java Media Framework and seriously all I understood was that it provides a player for playing media files. Is JMF the package that will provide me with classes and methods to access those details? If not, then which is it?

Dear Rancher, Thank you very much for the links. You guessed it right, I was looking for MP3 tags itself. But I did not want third-party API's. Instead I wanted to develop my own library. Luckily I followed a link to www.id3.org where I can learn about the tagging in detail.
I am guessing I will have to use the Java Sound API for this. Isn't it?

I don't think the Sound API supports ID3 tags, either, so a 3rd party library -either of your own making or from someone else- seems like the way to go.
