This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi. I'm not sure if this is the right forum but I will post my question. I want to connect a mobile phone and a PC via the Bluetooth technology, when the user press on "1" button of the mobile, the PC should take an action (taking a photo for example). My question is how to link the mobile phone & the PC via Bluetooth? Of course, I'm using Java Technology. Thanks.
You posted to the right forum. I was looking at the jdk for ( a vendor of pda's ) and saw there are several approches to your design challenge. You will have to have a jdk for a paticular device ( micro-device ) because of compiler issues that have to target a remarkably small ramspace   ( i never heard that term, but that's what it is ) and device abilities. bluetooth is mostly engineering and we are not going to get useful information except through compiler documentation.
I wrote a class customer that is a tree map of all the open handset alliance participants with their website address. If you want, I will email it to you - this is a great opportunity and I am looking for people to work with who are reasonably motivated to do a commercially acceptable grade of work.
google: Java ME Technical Articles, let me know anywhere you get stuck, also it looks like they have NetBeans, bluetooth and just about whatever it takes to do any concievable programming task. [ December 03, 2007: Message edited by: Nicholas Jordan ]
"The differential equations that describe dynamic interactions of power generators are similar to that of the gravitational interplay among celestial bodies, which is chaotic in nature."
Using Bluetooth with a J2ME device isn't a real big deal as long as the device supports the Bluetooth functions (I think it's JSR-82).
The only real hitch is that you probably will be limited to picking up events on the number pad only when your app is running. But it would be kind of hard to dial US long distance without a "1" key being routed to the telephone!
An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
1. A phone that implements Java Bluetooth (preferably using the Bluetooth JSR spec)
2. A desktop computer with a bluetooth transceiver (built-in or external like a USB Bluetooth dongle). AND bluetooth support software both for Java and any underlying OS services that the Java library invokes (again, preferably your Java Bluetooth library will implement the Bluetooth JSR spec - the same spec can do both clients and servers and peer/peer).
3. An application on the phone that implements your phone-side Bluetooth application logic.
4. An application on the desktop that implements your server-side application logic.
A distance of 30 feet/10m or less between the desktop's receiving antenna and the phone. YMMV, but I think this is the range for standard Bluetooth.
Hello all, Me too I have to develop an application where the pc will act as the server and mobile as the client. In the past I have develop a client server application for only mobile phones. Can I use the same server code for the pc??
Yet no particular solution.
I have the same problem. Its okay that we can run bluetooth server or client in the mobile phone. but the library in Java support only in Midlet. What about stand alone java application. Is there any precise API or method by which we can run a server in the Desktop PC so that my midlet in mobile phone can connect to the PC (running the java program) and talk with the application using bluetooth.
in short, how can we write a bluetooth midlet like application in PC using Java API? or what is the way around that provide same functionality?
