Sound Files without Japplet

The book I'm learning Java with said that you need to use a subclass of japplet to play sound files in a program, because the sound features of Java 1.0 were packaged with the applet classes. Is there a way to play sound files in a stand alone program using another method or different set of classes?

Yes. The Java Media Framework (JMF) is an add-on API that does what you want. See .
