Hi all

I have a basic swing app that has a text area and 2 buttons (to keep
things simple), when clicking the start button a sound is played,
however this makes the app non responsive, all other controls do not
respond till the sound stops.

I made the class that plays the sound extend thread now the play
button calls the start() method then the playSound() method, but I
have the same result.

Do you create a new Thread and call start on it?

What is the correct way to implement this feature?
What should I look into?



If playSound() is the method that plays the audio, just wrap it in a
Runnable and start it with a new thread.

Runnable r = new Runnable() {
     public void run() {
new Thread(r).start();

And off you go!
