Hi,
I am building a client application using J2ME which will run on a mobile phone and will send text data to a server that runs on a PC, using bluetooth. Is there any free software (simulator) available that allows me to test my application with bluetooth before I actually invest in buying a bluetooth dongle for my computer. If yes, then what are the steps required for using it from netbeans 6.0.1?
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance...

In order to implement the whole logic, you require a bluetooth dongle.

I have read on the internet that it is possible to use emulators that come with the sun wireless toolkit and other sdks supplied by phone manufacturers such as nokia. However till now I have been unable to find any simple tutorial that explains how to create a bluetooth application using these emulators. If anyone knows of any such tutorial then please let me know. Thank you.

Theres another question I have:

Do bluetooth dongles support jsr 82, or is it that any device will do for an application built using j2me?

Yes! Sun wireless toolkit allows you to test your bluetooth applications.
But, I don't know how to emulate/simulte your scenario. (PHONE-PC)

But Bluetooth functionality is tested as follows:
In General, You invoke two instances of the emulator(virutal mobiles). One instance of emulator can communicate with another instance. eg: if you send a message from one mobile Bluetooth(RFCOMM/OBEX) to another, it is displayed on another mobile.

I'll try to find some examples.

HTH.
