Hello Craig,

My question is about the certificate:

does this book cover the whole matters of the certificate? Could be used as a guide to take the exam  with no taking the Pivotal course ?

does it worth get the certification?

Thanks in advance.

Under "Understanding Views"

The text says: "... Both of these methods can throw a checked IOException, such as when the view class type is unsupported."  

But public static <V extends FileAttributeView> V getFileAttributeView(Path path, Class<V> type, LinkOption... options) does not throw any IOException.


I am sure it will be a great book and I hope there will be lots of test-like questions to practice!

Congrats to Sierra, Bates and Robson!
great and very very instructive answer!! I learnt a lot on your explanation. Thanks a lot John Damien Smith!!

PD: Indeed I had already used AudioClip.

Thanks again!

Great post and great book! Thanks Knute Snortum.

For the time being I am just invertigating how to play sounds and still not sure whethrt to use Clip.loop() or It's not about JavaFX.

I also consider using "aplay" system call cause so far this approach is working best on Linux, where as I said above, two instanciations of MediaPlayer give sometimes MediaException.

In anycase, I'll consider to buy the book you recommend me. It looks quite interesting.

Thanks again.

what about Thread.sleep(1000); // one second

That may not be the best way of getting a delay in JavaFX, though.

Thread.sleep() has the same effect. Both sounds at a time.

One more question:

Here is the second piece of code:

In spite of the delay, both sounds are being played in parallel. Why? How to make a real "gap"?

By the way... under Windows everything runs conveniently, but under RHEL,  when creating looks like randomly I get MediaException in init(). Enybody knows??

Thanks in advance.

I'll give it a try.

I have also added Thread.sleep() with a time greater than the beep duration as parameter in between but only one os played.

I expect for the sound played twice because is called two times. Ten... why is sounding once?

I have a question regarding this code snippet:

My question is why the sound is played only once instead of twice?

Other way... how to make the audio file to sound two times in a row?

Thanks in advance!!
