Re: Is there a library for Bonjour mdns connectivity?

It seems I was a bit too optimistic:


I tried setting up a small client and whenever I try to browse Bonjour services, the calls to the API are handled fine, but it always end up with a /* Background daemon not running */ error, not sure what to do with that..

I hardly believe it is possible for us devs to manage daemons on the PlayBook..

That's unfortunate to hear. It does make sense that it wants to run the daemon as a system service. Maybe try running it as a part of your app? A daemon is better, but this way is better than nothing.

Re: Is there a library for Bonjour mdns connectivity?



Did you ever get this to work nicely? I'm also looking for a way to easily implement mDNS in a BB10 app. If I could get hold of a library to do all the heavy lifting, that would be superb!

I have brought Avahi open source project on BlackBerry 10 platform (z10 & q10).


You can test from the BlackBerry World : "mDNS Service Discovery".


I can share the source.
