I just downloaded Eclipse and looked at the tutorials, then downloaded this plugin called SWT designer from http://www.instantiations.com/swt-designer/index.html. Now I am off and running on designing my first visual app. But I also want to play some audio in my app. Is there a Swing component you can include that looks like a media player bar, like, with a > for play and a || for pause, etc? I see lots of docs online for sound stuff, but I haven't seen anything about the visual component. Does it exist?

Also, what's the best designer plugin? Did I pick a good one?

Thanks!
Rebecca

Hi,

The Java media framework will help you out for your media. Just do an internet search on that. You need to download it as a separate add on to your JDK. From memory it comes with the interface that you stated 'for free'.

Another alternative for only playing sounds, is a static Applet method actually. Just look in the javadoc for the Applet class. You could easily add your own buttons to control pausing, playing etc.

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Jared.
