EOFException on a Bluetooth DataInputStream connection

Am I wrong or it doesn't make sense to get an EOFException when reading from a DataInputStream obtain from a bluetooth connection?

We are "streaming" a "network" connection. I could understand getting it from a FileInputStream but not from "network" connection.


Blackberry 8700 v4.2.1.101 (Platform 


String url = "btspp://008098D4BB48:1;authenticate=false;encrypt=false;master=false";

StreamConnection connection = (StreamConnection)Connector.open(url);
DataInputStream inputStream = connection.openDataInputStream();
LEDataInputStream efmInput = new LEDataInputStream(inputStream);  // LEDataInputStream is just a wrapper class to read the stream in Little Endian.


int b = efmInput.readUnsignedByte();


The funny things is I get this exception only when I keep my form "active" by rolling the wheel. The form is simply compose of 2 String (label) and 2 Gauge. If I turn the wheel to prevent the screen to turn off (power saving option) I get the problem. If I leave the wheel alone I don't get it. Like if the CPU was too busy to process both the connection and refreshing the screen. 


Here is the stacktrace grap from the Event log.

Name: EOFException

Re: EOFException on a Bluetooth DataInputStream connection

What line of code is triggering the exception?  What type of Bluetooth device are you connecting to?

Re: EOFException on a Bluetooth DataInputStream connection

>> What line of code is triggering the exception?

int b = efmInput.readUnsignedByte();


>> What type of Bluetooth device are you connecting to?

A Ezurio Bluetooth module.



I solve my problem with the following code:

int b;
while ((b = in.read()) == -1) {
buffer[index] = (byte)b;


But I can't still understand why I was getting it. I had the same code running on a Nokia 5300 without any issue. And again I get the problem on the Blackberry only If I generate some "other activity" on the BB by turn the wheel going from the different element in my form.
