implementing audio

For some reason my applet crashes when i try to implement audio
i get an error saying applet notinited

and when i open the java console it says:

java.lang.NullPointerException

      at java.applet.Applet.getCodeBase(Unknown Source)

      at WaterTankThread.<init>(WaterTankThread.java:46)

      at sun.reflect.NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.newInstance0(Native Method)

iv implemented it like so....

........
import java.applet.AudioClip;

public class AudioTest extends Applet implements ActionListener
{
// DATA MEMBERS
      ..........
      
      //sounds
      AudioClip soundVar;
                ...................

public AudioTest()            
      {
            .............
            //register sounds
            soundVar = getAudioClip(getCodeBase(), "sounda.wav"); //if i comment this line the applet will run fine??

You cannot acces getCodeBase() fromm the applet ctor.

Just move your initialisation code into the applets init() method.

     at java.applet.Applet.getCodeBase(Unknown Source)

It's nothing to do with audio. init() is a standard applet method that is called to perform applet initialization.
Before it is called codebase is not defined.

replace your ctor with this:

public void init()          
     {
          .............
          //register sounds
          soundVar = getAudioClip(getCodeBase(), "sounda.wav"); \
    }
