A Great Intro Book from a deeply caring Author

My experience has been that that this book covers THE BASICS in a very easy to understand writing style. I am a basic Database (formerly) and C/C++/Assembly (Embedded Hardware)Programmer, with some hands-on and classroom electronics (BS electrical engineering next year) background, but with NO FORMAL Java knowledge, and yet I found the book very easy to read and understand. As an added bonus I was introduced to JINI Networking concepts in a very gentle way too. This book will NOT teach you how to write Production Level Code, but that's not the purpose of the book. Instead this book will introduce the Java-Bluetooth beginner to underlying concepts in a straight forward intuitive way, including using a "Hands-On" Bluetooth Kit with 2 Bluetooth enabled Transceivers (highly Recommended if your new to the hardware), and testing bluetooth data encryption "sniffing" techniques with a FREE ad-on that is included with the additional kit. At the completion of this book you will have to surf the web and study the varios Bluetooth and Wireless Developer Toolkits that are out there. Finally, I want to thank Bruce Hopkins personally for IMMEDIATELY responding when I e-mailed him, regarding the where-abouts of my kit. It turned out that my kit was sitting at my complex the whole time, which was my fault not Bruce's, but Bruce acted Professionally the whole time, and in a short time we've emailed each other 5 times cumulatively, including a question I had about an SDK not directly mentioned in the book. In synopsis, Bruce's Book will teach you the BASICS and guide you into finding out for yourself where the next steps lay. For a TRUE BEGINNER this Book is GREAT, and for the seasoned java-bluetooth developer, you'll have to wait for Bruce's next clearly written Intermediate or Advanced Java Bluetooth Masterpiece.

Get On With It - Not your usual BlueTooth Book!

If you are a developer, student or home hobbyist with experience in Java programming and a desire to add bluetooth technology to your systems/programs then look no further than this book.Forget another book explaining the Bluetooth spec, you don't even need to understand what JSR-82 is, if you know how to use an API and Bluetooth is a must then read this. A brief overview on bluetooth, A brief introduction to JSR-82 then your ready with specific examples using popular Bluetooth hardware and Popular JSR-82 complient stacks.Bear in mind you'll need a complient bluetooth device and a JSR-82 based stack to use the book to it's full potential....

Excellent resource for the Bluetooth API

Bluetooth is a short range (max range of 30-300 feet) wireless communications protocol. JSR-82 is a Bluetooth API for Java that allows Bluetooth enabled devices talk to each other using the Java programs. Using Bluetooth, a PDA could talk to a printer and ask for a document to be printed or two Bluetooth enabled PDAs could exchange Java objects. Even if you know nothing about Bluetooth or wireless communications, this book will give you enough information to get started. The book starts with an examination of Bluetooth and the terminology you need to know to understand Bluetooth enabled devices. It then gets into the basics of the Bluetooth API for Java and developing programs using J2ME MIDP. Chapters cover creating a Bluetooth print server, passing objects between Bluetooth devices, and securing messages between devices. The authors discuss the PC software available to simulate two Bluetooth devices talking to each other so that you can develop an application without having two Bluetooth devices sitting on your desk. The final chapters covers topics such as Jini and Ericsson BlipNet. The book contains many well commented code samples demonstrating how to use the Bluetooth API.The book is very clear and concise. The book reads as if it was written by a couple of enthusiastic Bluetooth developers anxious to share the technology. And they do an excellent job of doing exactly that. The book is well written and interesting. I started the book knowing almost nothing about Bluetooth but now I feel confident that I can develop Bluetooth applications. If you have any interest in Bluetooth then I can recommend this book as an excellent resource.

Great book on Java and Bluetooth

This is a very good book on Bluetooth for Java. The authors do a good job explaining the topic and API, and good code examples and related information... I recommend this book.

Great book for Beginners

It is a great book for people who is new to bluetooth and JSR-82 (The only standardized Bluetooth API). By sample codes and introduction of rococo simulators, the users could begin their work in Bluetooth straightway. By end of this book, authors introduce Enterprise Bluetooth Applications with the Dricsson BlipNet, Bluetooth and Jini for more flexible application of Bluetooth.
