is there anyway to send windows-style beeps and dings without having to use 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.

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 ( It uses the Java Sound API (javax.sound) and the source code is included.
Good Luck.
