I'm working on an Android app (for my own learning), that can search music from the filesystem based on the tags in the files. Could anyone please recommend a good API for this purpose. I'm not looking for anything fancy, just searching for files based on tag values.
Thanks for the quick reply, Tim, but I was looking for some API that's compatible with Java 6. Java Media Framework is dead(as I understood it), JavaMusicTag was last built for jdk 1.3(again, this is my understanding), and the others that I found on the net were also for older JDK releases. Could somebody please advise me if there are any such libraries available on the net, or point me to resources so I could build my own(strictly last resort )?
Thanks for helping me out. I didn't mean to come across as dismissing your suggestion, my chief concern was about backwards compatibility, especially w.r.t android. Anyway, I'll try with them and see what happens.
