I use jdk 1.0.2 under win95. I use a File object from an application. I use then AudioClip with the File as parameter. The compilation runs well, but when the running, a NullPointerException comes. My File is not null, and the file exists really on my hard disk.  What is the problem ??
Thanks to answer

Are you sing code that looks like:

FileInputStream Myfile;
...
play(getCodeBAse(), MyFile);


If you are, then your problem is that you are sending a File class to the play command and not a String containing the name of your file.

If not, could you post the relevant parts of your code?

Yes, ok for an applet. But the method getCodeBase() does not work in an application ! How can I do this ? My code is :

URL son = new URL ("file:///C:/musique.au");
Audioclip clip = getAudioClip(son);

It is at this last line that the error appears:
java.Lang.NullPointerException at ...getAppletContext.

Thanks to answer me.

from comp.lang.java, Bill Tschumy posted

In order to create a valid Applet when running standalone you need to implement AppletStub and AppletContext. I have not see any code that does this completely enough to get a valid AudioClip. To my knowledge there is no way to play sound from an application without usingthe undocumented (and semi-forbidden) sun.* classes.
 
Now there is a possible (though unsatisfactoy) work arround.

You could create your application as an applet and then convert it to an application.

It isn't possible to play audio from a 'normal' application but you CAN do it, like this:

import java.io.*;
import sun.audio.*;

class TestAudio
{
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        FileInputStream fis_sound;
        int i;

        try
        {
            fis_sound = new FileInputStream(args[0]);
            System.out.println("Playing sound...");
            AudioPlayer.player.start(fis_sound);
            while (true)
            {
            }
        }
        catch (Exception e)
           System.out.println(e);
    }
}
