Java Sound does not provide ogg/vorbis decoding for playback. As a competitor to the mp3 format, ogg is based on non-patented technology, and libraries are under a BSD-style license, which would allow them to be included with Java Sound, or to be used by the Java Sound.

Ogg can be used for efficient transfer of audio data to applications and applets; streaming audio for web radios or streaming video; pay-per-listen systems.

Including ogg support in Java Sound will promote this new technology and help both ogg and Java Sound applications to gain more deployments. Supporting free and open standards fits well into the Java language.

Moreover, if Java Sound provides native ogg de/encoding, JMF could use it, too, and fix bug 4499904: "RFE: Ogg Vorbis and Tarkin support for JMF" automatically.
