i want to play an audio using the swing concept in a frame.. to get the audio file from disk, we need the URL and for that we need getDocumentBase and getCodeBase function which is present in applets.. so can anyone help me to know how to pass the URL parameters to my program... (i am trying to develope a media player like software) Thanks in advance...

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Maze. Please change your displayed name to conform to our

As for your question, document base and code base don't make sense in an application since there's no document (i.e. html file) loading the app. has a toURL() method which returns the URL representation of the file path, but I think you are barking up the wrong tree by using java.applet.AudioClip to play your media. The Java Media Framework API will give you the kind of functionality that people expect in a media player, like the ability to display the length of a song.
