Current J2SE 1.5 b28 spec states following:

public void setLoopEndPoint(long tick)
    IllegalArgumentException - if the requested loop point cannot be set, 
usually because it falls outside the sequence's duration or because the 
ending point is before the starting point".

However current implementation of MidiSystem.getLoopEndPoint() does not
generated expected IllegalArgumentException. This bug causes failure of 
new JCK test:


To reproduce this bug please run test 'MyTest' using  script 'MyTest.sh' below:

=============== MyTest.java source begin ===============
import javax.sound.midi.*;
import javax.sound.sampled.AudioPermission;

public class MyTest {

    public static void main(String argv[]) {

        Sequencer seq = null;
        MidiDevice.Info[] infos;
        try {
            infos = MidiSystem.getMidiDeviceInfo();
            for(int i=0;i<infos.length;i++) {
                if(MidiSystem.getMidiDevice(infos[i]) instanceof Sequencer) {
            System.out.println("Revelead sequencer: " + seq.getClass().getName());
                System.out.println("Expected IAE does not generated!");
            } catch (IllegalArgumentException iae) {
                System.out.println("Expected IAE:" + iae);
        } catch (MidiUnavailableException mue) {
            System.out.println("MidiUnavailableException was thrown: ");

EVALUATION It is probably arguable what should happen when setting the loop point on a synthesizer whose sequence is not set. Currently, the loop points are cached. It seems, however, that this does not seem to be the right thing. A fix is easy and riskless. ###@###.### 2003-11-21 An unrelated note: the System.exit(0) at the end of the test case is not necessary (anymore). However, the sequencer instance should be closed. Then the VM exits normally after completion of the main() method. ###@###.### 2003-11-24
