Obviously people’s voices demanding media in Java have been heard. Chet Haase blogs about a new project called Java Media Components, which aims at providing media playback capabilities in Java SE. He’s saying in his blog:
“If you attended the Java Technology Desktop overview session at JavaOne this year, you learned, along 500+ of your closest friends in the room, that we’re working on a new project that we call Java Media Components (JMC). This new feature, hopefully shipping in Java SE 7, is intended to support basic playback support for Java applications. JMC is also, eventually, intended to address capture and streaming capabilities.”
Now that’s news! I’m looking forward to a multimedia Java! Find the article here.
