java / pulseaudio question

I'm trying to run a jar file (an audio player) but get the following errors:

Exception in thread "Thread-1" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Master
Gain not supported at

Is this issue likely to be a bug in the jar file, a problem with PulseAudio,
or might it be solved by installing the Sun/Oracle version of java rather
than open java? I seem to have:-
java version "1.6.0_24"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11.4) (6b24-1.11.4-1ubuntu0.12.04.1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.0-b12, mixed mode)
