just found out that its pretty easy to play *.mid (Midi) files with Java. I would like to implement that to indicate new news have been downloaded. Of course that feature will be disabled by default, but some users might find it usefull.

Midi could be a problem, because the client need a Midi-Synthesizer. And you dont know how the sound sounds. The same Instrument could sounds like meow of an ill cat or like orchestral bombastic. Perhaps normal wave-files could be better, because on every plattform sounds nearly equal. Here some links for Free-Sounds:
If you need help in converting/compressing in a special Sound-Format, i can help ...
thanks for the info, that makes sense. I dont think its so easy to play Wav files. Found one solution that was win-only. Going to investigate how to play Wav with Java that works on any OS.
