android alarm sound not working

I have created an app where a user can insert various subjects and their day of exam.my app provides a time span for each subjects stored in database. when time allocated for each subject reaches,an alarm should play along with a notification.notification is coming properly,but alarm sound is not playing.please help me.

My alarm manager class is :

public class AlarmManager extends BroadcastReceiver {

sampleDatabase appdb;
SQLiteDatabase sqldb;
Cursor cursor;
int today,prev;
Intent in;

@Override
public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent)
{
NotificationManager manger = (NotificationManager)context.getSystemService(Context.NOTIFICATION_SERVICE);
Notification notification = new Notification(R.drawable.icon , "Yahrzeit" , System.currentTimeMillis());
in = new Intent(context,FirstAppActivity.class);
in.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP);
PendingIntent contentIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity(context, 0, in, 0);
notification.setLatestEventInfo(context, "ALERT!!!!", "Time Over" , contentIntent);
notification.flags = Notification.FLAG_INSISTENT;
appdb = new sampleDatabase(context);
sqldb = appdb.getReadableDatabase();
cursor = sqldb.query(sampleDatabase.TABLE_SEC, null, null, null, null, null, null);
cursor.moveToFirst();
Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
cal.set(Calendar.SECOND, 0);
today = (int)(cal.getTimeInMillis()/1000);
Log.e("Naga","Alarm");
Log.e("today",Integer.toString(today));
prev = 0;
cursor.moveToPrevious();
while(cursor.moveToNext())
{
int dbdate = cursor.getInt(cursor.getColumnIndex(sampleDatabase.ALARMSET));
int id = cursor.getInt(cursor.getColumnIndex(sampleDatabase.ROW_ID));
Log.e("dbdate",Integer.toString(dbdate));
if((dbdate<=today)&&(dbdate>prev))
{
manger.cancelAll();
manger.notify(1, notification);
sqldb.execSQL("DELETE from " + sampleDatabase.TABLE + " where " + sampleDatabase.ROW_ID + "=" + id);
sqldb.execSQL("DELETE from "+sampleDatabase.TABLE_SEC + " where " + sampleDatabase.ROW_ID + "=" + id);

}
prev = dbdate;
}
cursor.close();
sqldb.close();

}


code which i used to call this alarm manager is like this:

alarmintent = new Intent(getApplicationContext(),com.nagainfo.firstAp.AlarmManager.class);
sender = PendingIntent.getBroadcast(getApplicationContext() , 0 , alarmintent , PendingIntent.FLAG_CANCEL_CURRENT | Intent.FILL_IN_DATA);
am = (AlarmManager) getSystemService(ALARM_SERVICE);
am.cancel(sender);

alarmintent = new Intent(getApplicationContext(), com.nagainfo.firstAp.AlarmManager.class);
//alarmintent.putExtra("note","Hebrew");
sender = PendingIntent.getBroadcast(getApplicationContext() , 0 , alarmintent , PendingIntent.FLAG_CANCEL_CURRENT | Intent.FILL_IN_DATA);
am = (AlarmManager) getSystemService(ALARM_SERVICE);
am.setRepeating(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, alarmtime, 60000, sender);

Answer

You have not specified to use sound. Use this :

notification.defaults=Notification.DEFAULT_SOUND|Notification.DEFAULT_VIBRATE;

If you do not want the vibrate remove it. The point is you have to bit wise OR them. So, if you want lights also -

notification.defaults=Notification.DEFAULT_SOUND|Notification.DEFAULT_VIBRATE|Notification.DEFAULT_LIGHTS;
