You can use either the JMF API to play MP3 files (which is no longer developed, as far as I can tell), or QuickTime (which doesn't support Unix).

But if you're playing those on the server, who's going to hear them?

It has certain possibilities assuming you know who is going to be in the server room and when. You could play theme music, or special sound bites.

You could also play some warning sound when the server gets short of memory, or the load gets very high...

Maybe somebody could write a log4j MP3 appender for this.

And perhaps you can also find a use for this somewhere:

We are already using that as the "build failed" sound for Cruise Control. Together with a flashing red light, of course.

The "stupid" quote is neat, but we've found that voice output is harder to identify than pure sound effects - especially in a room full of pair programming pairs...
