Hi....

im a newbie in bluetooth programming.....I'll be using vb.net in doing the bluetooth pc server...the client part is java and currently im working on the server side and having problem with coding it.....im not sure where to find the information regarding this topic...there are few issues that im not so sure how to code it......

1. how does the server accept request from the mobile through bluetooth dongle
2. how does the server send the requested data to mobile through bluetooth dongle once it has found it in the database

i hope to hear from the expert.....im really not sure where to start....if there is a link on article or sth that i can read on...it is really really appreciated.....thanks in advance.....

Unfortunately, there's no simple API for Bluetooth interaction on Windows. Bluetooth support can be provided by a number of different Bluetooth stacks, and each one works differently.

Microsoft Bluetooth API - This is the stack that is built into Windows XP/Vista. It has limited profile support (eg: doesn't support the stereo audio profile)
BlueSoleil SDK - BlueSoleil is a fully-featured stack (I got a copy with one of the dongles I bought from DSE)
Broadcom Bluetooth for Windows SDK - Previously known as the Widcomm stack, until Broadcom bought them out
Toshiba Bluetooth Stack - not sure if there is a freely available SDK for this one, and I think it's only used on the Toshiba laptops

As far as I'm aware, none of these SDKs provide managed (that is native .Net classes) versions of their APIs, but you should be able to find a few with a bit of Googling, or you can write your own proxy classes.

Good luck with your quest, but it's not going to be easy... Wink

xcubed: Toshiba Bluetooth Stack ... I think it's only used on the Toshiba laptops ...

The Toshiba software/stack is also provided with certain non-Toshiba-branded Bluetooth USB adapters, notably the very small ones using the Toshiba module.
