beep : Java Glossary


Java does not have a built-in set of sounds. It ignores '\a' in console output, though you can use \007. In Java version 1.1 You can make a simple beep with java.awt.Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit.beep. I have seen reports that beep does not work properly on some platforms. In JDK (Java Development Kit) 1.0.2 you can use System.out.print(\007); System.out.flush(); You can also play au files. On PCs (Personal Computers) without a sound card you can play tones on the built-in speaker.
