I found a few references for how to run bluetooth applications within a simulator environment, but I was hopeing for a bit more info. For example I'm not sure which Casira tools I need to buy and if I need to do anything special to get them working. Does anyone have a reference to a white paper or video?
I think the Casira tool is this:
but at $3K I'd like to be sure this is what I need and not overkill. $3K is a lot of bucks.
I'm using the Eclipse JDE plugin with a Bold-9000 simulator. I have successfully built and deployed the sample bluetooth apps to my phone. I'm looking to build more sophisticated apps. I think I'll need to have a simulator running for debugging and in general not blowing up my actual b-berry phone.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I agree that there is not enough documentation on this topic.
We did get the Casira kit working (and yes it is the rather expensive product you linked to).
You basically hook that device up to your PC and configure it on a COM port.
Once you do that you run the blackberry simulator by simply specifying the COM port on which Casira is connected.
For example if Casira is configured on COM 2, the simulator command line would be:
fledge /handheld=9500 /bluetooth-port=2 /app=jvm.dll
Unfortunatly I don't know of any other cheaper bluetooth hardware you could use.

Don't use yours - borrow a friend's ;-)
You are right, I have assortment of traded up BB's to test with, I'm not sure I would want to test on my own. But you are going to have to test on real device at some time, and a real Blackberry is a lot less than $3K isn't it.

I have got the Casira Kit and connected it to the COM1. I have specified this setting in the BB JDE simulator settings. I cannot communicate with the Casira kit. I can see in the logs that Blackberry Simulator is sending the HCI Reset Command but not getting a response.
In the PSR key I have configured the Casira as HCI Device (PSKEY_ONCHIP_HCI_CLIENT = 0x00) and the baud rate to 38.4k (PSKEY_UART_BAUDRATE). Could you please tell me what else can I check to make it work?

I have a CASIRA kit configured as HCI UART device and I can run IVT Bluesoliel stack using this kit. But when I run the blackberry simulator it is unable to communicate with the Casira Kit. Could you please tell me what serial port settings to use on the Casira kit to make it working with Blackberry simulator.
I need this answer quite urgently. If you could help me out that would be great. Thanks a lot
