      Description

      Summary

      Default configuration of JavaSound cannot be customized.

      Problem

      There is no way to provide location of "sound.properties", which is by default located in the jdk/conf folder. For the similar purpose for logging the next property is used: "java.util.logging.config.file" which points to "logging.properties"

      Solution

      The new optional "javax.sound.config.file" system property can be added, which specified default location of the "sound.properties".

        * properties file is read from an implementation-specific location (typically
      - * it is the {@code conf} directory in the Java installation directory). If a

      + * The optional "javax.sound.config.file" system property can be used to specify

        * property exists both as a system property and in the properties file, the
