Hi everyone

I need to communicate from laptop with Arduino device which have Bluetooth module. For that I would like to write my own Java application on my laptop. I did some investigation on this topic and I found out that I should probably use JSR-82 specification. One of best known implementations of it is BlueCove. But last version of BlueCove is from year 2008. With all those things like Bluetooth SMART appearing in last years I would say that maybe this implementation is little bit outdated. Is BlueCove really way to go or should I use something else? Any suggestions?

JSR-82 is probably just as outdated. I think you either have to use an older implementation (BlueCove), or find a different library that doesn't implement JSR-82 but has its own API and is more up-to-date.
