Help on streaming audio data with JMF !!

We are simulating an Audio Conferencing System in java.
We are using java native methods to capture audio samples. We want to send these samples through Sockets (TCP/IP or UDP) while it is being captured, and play it using JMF player at the other end. But JMF player requires URL (of audio ) to be specified to play it.We want to know whether JMF supports playing audio samples from inputstream of a Socket.

You can't actually do this directly because the only
two constructors for MediaLocators are URLs and
Strings.  However, you could be sneaky about it.  

You could subclass URL and create:

public class MyURL extends URL
{
  Socket s;
  //In your constructor, set up your socket connection
  //
  public MyURL(String host, int port)
  {
    s = new Socket(host, port);
  }

  // Then you just need to override the openStream()
  // method since this is most likely the only one that
  // will get used.  If you get errors from other methods
  // go ahead and implement those.  This is not the cleanest
  // solution, but it should work.

// Hope that helps,

Thanks for your  answer.

Actuallly we have done creating new URL and implemented openStream() and it is working fine.

But the problem is while sending wav samples it needs wav header,
in which we need to specify the file length( wave file size)which is unknown while we are recording online. If we specify some size
say 1MB, it accepts only 1MB of samples and plays. It is not accepting the rest of the samples that we are sending continuously. Is it possible to send the wave header without specifying the file length or whether we can specify the  
file length as unknown.

Thanking You

I do not believe there is a way to specify that the
filesize is unknown, but you could set it to an
arbitrarily large number, say 1GB.  Then, since you've
overriden your URL class, you can send a stop to the
player when you've reached the end of your Stream.
