Push Registry activation by Bluetooth

We're a company that developed a java application for E-Healt.


The E-Healt device have to start the appication by connecting to the mobile phone by bluetooth and sending data to it.


Our application runs fine on all the java-supporting mobile phones except blackberry, here is the code snippet that creates the issue:



            connections = PushRegistry.listConnections(false);

            if (connections.length == 0) {
                try {
                } catch (Exception ex) {
                   bsi.HandleError(ex.getMessage() + ex.toString());




When i run the application i get this Exception:


btspp://localhost:1101,name=Myapp does not support pushjavax.microedition.io.ConnectionNotFoundException:btspp://.....


This is quite strange since you claim to support jsr82 v1.1 and MIDP 2.0


We tested the application on a BlackBerry 8310 v4.5.0.44 (Platform  cryptographic kernel v

Re: Push Registry activation by Bluetooth

Regarding compliance with the relevant JSR specifications, support for PushRegistry launch capability is not mandatory over any particular connection type. So a connection type may be supported in general but it is not necessarily the case that this means it is supported for use with the PushRegistry. This is defined in JSR118 MIDP2 where it says:

"Connection vs Push Registration Support
Not all generic connections will be appropriate for use as push application transport. Even if a protocol is supported on the device as an inbound connection type, it is not required to be enabled as a valid push mechanism. e.g. a platform might support server socket connections in a MIDlet, but might not support inbound socket connections for push launch capability. A ConnectionNotFoundException is thrown from the registerConnection and from the registerAlarm methods, when the platform does not support that optional capability."

So it seems you are experiencing a ConnectionNotFoundException as a consequence of this.


Note that this issue is being investigated as a feature request in the Issue Tracker.
