Hi,

I need to make an application for the phone that takes a user input and sends it via bluetooth to a PC. The PC would have a bluetooth USB adapter or something like that to recieve the connection from the phone and also the data. There would be an application on the PC that would take this data and do some kool stuff with it.

I havent played around with bluetooth at all, but i assume that implementing the client Application on the phone would be simple.

Any ideas on how i should go about implementing the application on the PC. I want it to independent of the hardware(USB dongle manufacturer etc.). Is there a generic way an application on the PC can listen to the messages from bluetooth enabled phones etc ...

would appreciate any pointers.

I think you can use JSR 82 on the PC end as well. I think the book Bluetooth for Java might help you get started.
