Yes good idea, but I fear building the JDK under Windows, because Sun uses
old versions of SDK's and Compiler (I do not have VS.NET 2003 and I don't
want to buy it at eBay). I have already build an older JDK version and it
was horrible. (Tweaking make files and so on ...)
Is it possible to compile dsound.dll seperatly with VS 2005 Express ?

Yes, you are right. But I do not know if it is possible to get the
supported formats from DirectSound.
I think the number of capture channels is available, but only when the
line is open.
