Learning java, question about the possibility of a specific task I want to accomplish.
Posted on 2006-04-16
Im fluent in C, but new to java, just getting my feet wet. In my line of work I frequently process audio files using various audio applications. What I would like to do, with java, is create a GUI to help me out. Currently for each file I process I must open my audio application, find the file, input the new file name to save as, and input the length of the sound bite or track I am processing so the audio processor knows when to stop. I frequently have long lists of audio for commercials and jingles and occasionally just plain music. Having to stop and wait for each sound file to finish so i can input the settings for the next one is a real time killer. So my question is this, is it possible to creat a GUI that will take in a text file of file names, open my audio program, retrieve file length from the sound file (possibly windows media player), input save to information, input file length, and finally process file, then repeat for each entry in the text file. The biggest problem i can see is the file length information. Im not looking for direct solutions here, not yet anyhow, as I am learning java and would like to write this myself, but would definitely like a yes or no on the project being possible. Some GENERAL pointers to the major aspects would also be appreciated. Im not looking for any code snippets. Thanks.
