Bluetooth L2CAP connection request to Connector.open(...)

I am relatively new to Java development and Blackberry development in particular.

 

Is an L2CAP connection request allowed. I am passing the following url:

url = "btl2cap://" + rmdv.getBluetoothAddress() + ":1007";

to Connector.open(url, Connector.READ_WRITE, true );

 

I eventually get a failed return.

 

Somewhere along the way I also get a popup requesting a pin for pairing. My understanding was that pairing is a higher level function than the L2CAP layer, so why would trying to open an L2CAP connection cause the PIN popup.

 

We are creating both sides of the connection, and are not using an existing server stack.

 

Any suggestions on how to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated. More importantly, is this even possible?

 

Sincerely,

Anil S.

BlackBerry handhelds require a Bluetooth device be paired and make use of a PIN before Bluetooth communication is allowed.

Mark,

 

Thank you for the prompt reply.

 

However, I am still not sure if the L2CAP connection request is even allowed. If not then the whole thing is moot.

The BlackBerry does support L2CAP connections when using JSR 82 on a BlackBerry running BlackBerry handheld software version 4.2.1 and higher.
