    supported sound formats

    in addition to MIDI and WAV, can a Java application running on a Nokia phone "play" other sound formats supported by the phone such as MP3? Also is there any difference in the API features depending upon format?

    For example the J2ME MMAPI and MIDP 2.0 specs define a set of apis for interacting with MIDI and WAV. Do these same apis apply for any other formats, or do Nokia phones use a different api for loading and playing formats like mp3?

    MMAPI is used for all formats but the supported protocols and controls vary. Here is the latest list for S60 devices:
