Be careful meow00 -if you want to play standard sound files you usually have to use the full sound API

err ... then can I play sound in a simple frame :
(I only need very simple sound, such as "ding". Is there any default files in the java package ?)

i.e. what would be the easiest way to just put a "ding" in the following place ??? many thanks !

------------------------------------------------------------------
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.* ;
import java.awt.event.* ;

public class MyTest extends JFrame{
    private int i ;  
    public MyTest() {
   
        int i=0 ;
        for(i=0; i<100; i++){
          if(i%10==0) {
           // I want to play a simple sound here !!!
       
        setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);  
        setSize(600,600) ;
        show() ;
       
    }
    /**
     * @param args the command line arguments
     */
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        MyTest meow = new MyTest() ;
        // TODO code application logic here
    }
   
 }

Or you might be lucky with something like:

for(int i=0; i<100; i++) {
      if (i % 10 == 0) {
            Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().beep();
      }
}

File file = new File("bark.wav");
AudioClip clip = Applet.newAudioClip(file.toURL());
clip.play();

Here is a sweet demo :

import javax.swing.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.awt.* ;
import java.awt.event.* ;
import java.applet.*;
import java.net.URL;

public class MyTest extends JFrame {

    private JButton b1;

    public MyTest() {
   
    b1 = new JButton(" Click To Play Sound ");
    this.getContentPane().add(b1, BorderLayout.CENTER);

    setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);  
    setSize(300,300) ;
    setVisible(true) ;        

    b1.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent h)
      {
        File file = new File("C:/YourFolder/YourSound.wav");
        AudioClip clip = Applet.newAudioClip(file.toURL());
        clip.play();
      }
     });
    }

    /**
     * @param args the command line arguments
     */
    public static void main(String[] args) {

        MyTest meow = new MyTest() ;
        // TODO code application logic here
    }
 }

Hi objects & JavaTM,

  how come I got an error :

 Test.java [227:1] unreported exception java.net.MalformedURLException; must be caught or declared to be  thrown
                   AudioClip clip = Applet.newAudioClip(file.toURL());
------------------------
 I have imported the following :
 did I miss anything ?

 import java.io.* ;
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.* ;
import java.awt.event.* ;
import java.applet.*;
import java.net.URL;

you need to wrap it in a try/catch block:

try
{
   File file = new File("bark.wav");
   AudioClip clip = Applet.newAudioClip(file.toURL());
   clip.play();
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
   ex.printStackTrace();
}

Try this :

-Reminder !, dont forget the location of the file !, wav, au and midi will work but not mp3.

import javax.swing.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.awt.* ;
import java.awt.event.* ;
import java.applet.*;
import java.net.URL;

public class MyTest extends JFrame {

    private JButton b1;

    public MyTest() {
   
    b1 = new JButton(" Click To Play Sound ");
    this.getContentPane().add(b1, BorderLayout.CENTER);

    setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);  
    setSize(300,300) ;
    setVisible(true) ;        

    b1.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent h)
      {
        try {
        File file = new File("C:/YourFolder/YourSound.wav");
        AudioClip clip = Applet.newAudioClip(file.toURL());
        clip.play();
        }
        catch(Exception e) {
        e.printStackTrace();
        }
      }
     });
    }

    /**
     * @param args the command line arguments
     */
    public static void main(String[] args) {

        MyTest meow = new MyTest() ;
        // TODO code application logic here
    }
 }
