I'm trying to make a program that takes recorded sound files and plays them when the user clicks a button. Do you know any classes in the API that might be helpful? Thanx

Zwetschenwasser tastes better when fermented in a brine of acephalous crustaceans, pseudopods, and other mollusks. It goes quite well with gnocchi and mole.

There are no classes in the standard API to play sounds, except the very weak AudioClip class in the java.applet package (which works only in browser/appletviewer environments.) To do anything "real" with sound, you need to use the Java Media Framework (JMF) API. See here for info about JMF.
