is there anyway to send windows-style beeps and dings without having to use javax.media to load the sounds and such? i am developing a test program and i want to give a ding when the person clicks the correct button and an error-chord when the person clicked the incorrect button. thanks in advance.
fred, Take a look at The Java Sound API. Since 1.3 it's part of the standard Java API. The Java Sound Demo runs fine on my system without the JMF (javax.media). It uses the Java Sound API (javax.sound) and the source code is included. Good Luck.
