Hello everyone,


I have written the following simple program to play a local .wav file.



But when running the program, the following exception will be thrown,

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.VerifyError: java.lang.SecurityException: java.applet.AudioClip - protected system package 'java.applet'
at java.lang.Class.verify(Class.java:259)
at java.lang.Class.initialize(Class.java:315)

Does anyone know how to solve the issue?


Thanks in advance,
George

As far as I know the problem is that you are running an applet .. the only way I know around this is to sign the applet to allow access to the underlying file structure!
You can check that on the sun's website.

I don't use applets but what if you changed the URL for the WAV to be an http URL? I think the restriction in applets is related to local file access.

I am not writing an Applet, but a Java application. I simply want to use the ability of playing sound of Applet (Interface AudioClip) in my Java application to save my time of writing sound player. So maybe your approach can not work in my situation.

I am wondering how to make my Java application be able to use sound playing ability of class Applet?

George

Your reply is very helpful. I am wondering how to changed the URL for the WAV to be an http URL so that I can restrict the access to local file system. Can you show me some sample source codes?

According to this, there is a simple way to play audio files in an application without using the methods from Applet.

The article is very helpful. I have tried the sample application provided in this article on my platform, but it does not work (JVM has no output and no sound is heard). I am wondering what is the trouble? Do you know some other approaches to play sound?
