I have been trying to mess around with Java 3D, in particular the 3D sound engine, I found this example code for a SimpleSounds Applet and im getting compiling errors with the example code, I was just wondering does anyone have any experience with this example and how to get it working?

So the error is

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException: Canvas3D: null GraphicsConfiguration
at SimpleSounds.<init>(
at SimpleSounds.main(

And the example code is

Thanks in advance for any help with this issue!

I have no experience, but the Canvas3D API I found specifically prohibits a null parameter, making your statement at line 47 unacceptable. I accept that an API I found randomly on the web may not correspond to the actual library you're using, so please consider my suggestion suspect until proven otherwise.
