Hello everybody
even though i got few posts regarding blue tooth communication but adding this post saperate because of mobile and printer feasibility with solution

i am proposing a solution to one of my client to have a printed receipt via blue tooth enable mobile and printer, no computer there.
i selected following cell phones.
Nokia6600
Nokia7610
(due to cost and rough usage) if you people think should i use any other do also suggest)

Printers i selected
1- HP OFFICEJET H470 Mobile Printer series
2- HP DESKJET 460 Mobile Printer series
or
1-HP Laser Jet + Bluetooth adapter

so in my pt. of view j2me application will communicate to the printer via bluetooth using Nokia 6600 & any HP mobile printer should work, if is there any constraint do let me know please.
another important question
I read an article using atinav sdk. but unfortunately i didn't find it on the link. so any simple article using only j2me api and printing simple text on printer.
In other possibility i am thinking what if blueoot enable mobile at one side & bluetooth adapter(dongle) at pinter side, i can use the conventional printers, but later i think that where driver will be installed? since no PC will be there . please do let me know if i am wrong.


i will appreciate your comments and feedback

thanks

I'd guess that the easiest solution would be to setup a Bluetooth Printer Profile client app in your mobile device and use that to handle the print requests.

I've had some fun looking all that up, but have to run, so for a start, you might want to look at the BPP specs at http://www.bluetooth.com/NR/rdonlyres/28EC09DC-1598-4889-9B7E-3E8D9803FFBA/2940/BPP_SPEC_V12r01.pdf

I haven't found out if anyone's done a J2ME package for this.

thanks Tim
i am looking into the URL you sent.
do you have any idea of atinav sdk? i think they have removed thier SDK from the link they have placed in their web site

So, at first step i am looking for the proof of concept of this printing excercise using j2me client(JSR-82)
1- Nokia 6600
2- HP OFFICEJET H470 Mobile Printer series

It looks like they're defunct. For a mobile device, however, you'd normally already have a Bluetooth JSR-82 client as part of the phone's Java environment. It's pretty much got to be that way, since different hardware would require different low-level Bluetooth code.

You might want to check Nokia's developer docs and forumnokia to see if they have BPP builtin to the 6600. If not, you'd probably have to do it the hard way, writing your own JSR-82 based BPP package. At least you have the specs!
