What audio file formats are supported with the Java 2 platform? Is there a difference between 1.2 and 1.3?

John Zukowski

According to http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.2/docs/guide/sound/index.html:

The following audio file formats are supported: AIFF, AU and WAV. In addition, the following MIDI-based song file formats are supported: MIDI TYPE 0, MIDI TYPE 1, and RMF.

The 1.3 documentation [http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/guide/sound/index.html] do not seem to add more audio formats, just a software-based mixer and access to the MIDI hardware.

Prior to the Java 2 platform, for Java 1.0/1.1, only the AU format was supported.
