Using openAL as stand alone

I'm trying use openAL as a standalone library to add audio to my game engine that is written in JavaFX. The FX audio library is very limited and doesn't handle playing more than 3 sounds at once well. Every tutorial I've come across has you create some form of a rendering window and game loop. Is it possible to use openAL solo without creating a window in lwjgl ?


Yes, it's possible, there's no dependency to a rendering context/window. See the ALCDemo as an example.
