Sound Files

I would like to develop a Java program that will play a particular song depending on what the person chose from a drop-down list. My question is can the Java programming language be programmed to play an MP3 (MPEG-3) or a windows media audio (WMA) file. If not then what can be used instead of MP3 or WMA? Thanks ahead for any responses.

I don't know all the audio formats that are supported by Java, but googling for "playing audio files in java" found several hits that look helpful.

I think JMF (Java Media Framework) will be useful for this.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
