Get Stream from Bluetooth or USB?

Currently I'm working on the simple GPS tracking system for my Final Year Project. The GPS receiver that I have is actually a Bluetooth
device which can be connected to the PC/Laptop with USB cable.
Basic idea is to get the NMEA string from the GPS receiver, then plot the corresponding lat/long on the digital map.

Questions:-
1. To read the NMEA string from the GPS receiver, how's the Java program gets the stream from? Do I need to use comm-API or the rarely known USB-API?


Many thanks,
Khew
