Bluetooth Application Programming with the Java APIs (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Networking)
Adoption of Bluetooth wireless technology has made great strides in the last few years. One of the biggest steps forward-the standardization of Java APIs for Bluetooth wireless technology (JABWT)-is explained in detail in this book. The JABWT standard, defined by the JSR-82 specification, supports rapid development of Bluetooth applications that are portable, secure, and highly-usable. Wireless device manufacturers have responded to the JABWT specification by announcing mobile phones and other products that will run JABWT applications. Bluetooth Application Programming with the Java APIs explains in detail how to write Bluetooth applications using the Java APIs to exploit the power of both technologies. Written by the specification lead for JSR-82 and two other key participants in the definition of JABWT, this book provides the authoritative explanations and concrete examples you need to get started right away.

* Written by experts-the authors led the industry team that defined the JABWT standard and the Motorola team that developed the first JABWT implementation * Covers JABWT in depth and goes beyond the specification to explain how to use the standard effectively * A helpful resource both to Java programmers interested in Bluetooth wireless technology and to business managers interested in its potential for creating new business opportunities * Digs deeply into the programming areas you must master to successfully design and build JABWT applications, including RFCOMM, OBEX, device discovery, service discovery, and L2CAP * Details the real-world issues involved in programming Bluetooth devices and implementing the JABWT specification * Organized into sections that explicitly address the different needs of programmers, business managers, and project managers
Perfect mix of Bluetooth and Java
By Lasse Koskela - November 28, 2003
My prior knowledge about Bluetooth can be described with one word-superficial. Therefore, I hail the authors for making a brave move. The book is not just an introduction to the Bluetooth Java APIs but also an introduction to the whole Bluetooth architecture and terminology. The fact that a lot of space is used to explain the underlying protocols specified in the Bluetooth specification can be both a godsend and a sleeping pill. For me, it was a godsend...The book starts with a brief overview to what Bluetooth is as a technology. Then, JABWT (Java API for Bluetooth Wireless Technology) and how is it positioned in the field of various J2ME technologies is explained to set the architectural vision into the reader's mind. This section of the book is a very pleasant read, giving out just the right amount of information.Next, the authors continue by tackling each main acronym one at a time using a recurring pattern: introduce technology, introduce API, illustrate with snippets of... read more
