Hello. I'm making some small, console, text game, and I want to play music (in MP3 format) in the background. Is it possible?

If I need some special libs, what libs do I need, and how to use them (other source of information than documentation).
Greets, Kacper.

The tools you are looking for is the Java Sound API. The web is full of examples and tutorials on the subject, so it shouldn't be hard to find info.

I agree. Here's the link:
