The cell phone development environment for the project consists of the following components:


Bluetooth Stack:

Depending on the manufacturer of your Bluetooth device, you may have to install different Bluetooth stacks. (Please refer the official installation instructions of your Bluetooth device). There are three major stacks:

  • Microsoft stack
  • Widcomm stack
  • BlueSoleil stack

Microsoft XP stack comes with SP2. After install the Bluetooth driver on your Windows, in most cases you can switch between the device specific stack like Widcomm or BlueSoleil to MS SP2 stack. Normally either of them should work, but MS SP2 stack provides less functionality.


Nokia PC Suite:

This software installed on your PC manages your cell phone through your computer. Generally speaking it allows upload/download files, synchronizing your personal information such as contacts, notes, calendar, and tasks from Outlook, deploy/remove applications. This software is in the CD that comes with the Nokia 6680 cell phone. We recommend you to upgrade to the latest version 6.7 from the Nokia website.http://nds2.nokia.com/files/support/global/phones/software/Nokia_PC_Suite_67_rel_21_ eng.msi

You can establish a connection between your cell phone and computers either through the USB cable (from the cell phone box) or Bluetooth (You need to use the latest stack; otherwise Nokia PC suite won’t be able to find your BT devices.).


Java Standard Development Kit:

  • J2SDK 1.4.1 or above
  • J2SE 5.0 is recommended.



Bluetooth Java Development Kits:

There are many choices, but most of them are not free and a license is required for each Bluetooth device. (Refer to http://www.javabluetooth.com/development_kits.html for more information)

If you use the Bluetooth devices provided by our school, you will get a license for each device. And the kit we will use is Avetana. You don’t have to install it right now. The kit will be distributed to the class later on.



You can use any IDE you want like Eclipse, JBuilder, NetBeans or Notepad+cmd line. Eclipse 3.1 is recommended (J2SE 5.0 is required)


J2ME Development Kits

You can choose the kit from Nokia or a generic one from SUN.

  • Nokia Developer’s Suite (NDS) for J2ME (You have to register in 15 days, and registration is free).NDS supports several platforms like S40, S60 and S80. We will use S60. The suite can integrate with most popular Java IDEs such as Eclipse, JBuilder, WSAD, and Netbeans. It can also run as a standalone application just like the Sun Wireless Toolkit described below.
  • Sun Java Wireless Toolkit 2.2http://java.sun.com/products/sjwtoolkit/download-2_2.html. A patch is also available. (You can find a lot of J2ME examples in the package.)
  • Sun Java Wireless Toolkit 2.3 beta is also available; it should work without major issues, but bugs might exist.http://java.sun.com/products/sjwtoolkit/download-2_3.html

Add-ons (These are optional, you don’t really need to install them)

For a Linux user:Besides Java SDK and IDE, you have to install a proper Bluetooth stack, Bluetooth Development kit like Rococo (http://www.rococosoft.com/blue_dk.html) and Sun Java Wireless Toolkit for Linux. However you still need to use a Windows box to finally deploy your program on the cell phone. Of course during the development stage you can use emulator.
