J2ME and JSR-82 Midlet - how to start...

Hi guys,

I want to create a small APP that uses the JSR-82.

Can you please give me some guidelines on how to start the whole thing. I have read some tutorials and books but have little experience so I don`t know how to start.

1. The app should somehow broadcast or tell other devices that have the same app some kind of user name that it uses (not the phone's friendly name).
2. I want the app to be able to send a JAVA Object created within the app to one or some devices running the app.

Thank you guys, I hope I explained it clearly ( yeah right ! )

Also do you know any decent IRC or other chat I could get support form?

Regarding Objects, the Wikipedia page on Java_APIs_for_Bluetooth lists "Generic Object Exchange (OBEX) Profile" as one of the things you can use so, perhaps, you should either go to the JSR 82 API download page, download the latest Final release (at this time it's "Final Release 3"), and look up "Obex;" or, look up Obex on some bluetooth tutorials.

Looking up Obex might even help you with your connection issue, but I don't know for sure.
