By popular demand, it is now distributed in its own bundle.
Lava's jWave is a versatile set of packages for Java that allow you to easily create and process RIFF files, with a special emphasis on reading and writing Microsoft PCM .wav files. jWave was initially released as an integrated feature of Lava, a general-purpose class library for Java.

Lava is a class library for Java. Its packages evolved from several programmers' need for features in Java that were not available in the standard Java library. Although Lava includes several GUI-related classes, its main emphasis is in batch-oriented data processing and reporting applications. Thus, there is a heavy emphasis on stream parsing, data manipulation, and text formatting.
This is wonderful!
I am so amazed that a group of individuals could get together and produce such a useful piece of work -- and then just give it away! Your Unix system is definitely not complete until it has the latest version of GhostScript.
Don't forget that if you use any recent version of RedHat, your copy of GhostScript is probably out of date.
