Hi,

I want to program an application (running on a cell phone) which allows me to send files from my phone to a desktop PC via Bluetooth.
Does anyone has experiences about that and how this can be realized?

Thanks in advance,

Peter

Well, you device would need to implement the Bluetooth API JSR 82. If it doesn't then you will not have access to use Bluetooth.

If it does then you use the Bluetooth API to discover the machine, discover if it has your service, then make a Connection and transfer the byte information of the file.

Do a search to find a Bluetooth API tutorial.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
