I am looking for an MP3 to Wav audio file converter to use on Solaris environment. I tried JLayer. It converts the files fine, in the sense the converted wave files can be played back fine, but the file metadata is not captured/converted correctly. I also tried Sox but I am not able to do the symbolic linking of Lame and other libries. So failed there also. Please let me know if there is any command-line or java source code that I can use for audio conversion.
.wav files don't have support for ID3v2 metadata. They do have a Riff header that you can use to hold Title and artist names... you might be able to find some opensource software that will edit the riff headers for you.
When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

Thank you for the response Janeice. In our project, we are trying to convert the existing mp3 files into wav and preserve them. In the process of preservation, we do a metadata check on the converted files are close to the original copy with respect to their metadata. Hence this exercise. These files fail to pass metadata extraction from the JHove tool. Anyways thanks again for the suggestion. I will research on the riff header editor.
