javaloader.exe with bluetooth

Is it possible to get javaloader.exe to work with bluetooth instead of having to manually plug in the device with USB cable.


I find it crazy that RIM supports bluetooth, but doesn't support it the same way as USB....makes bluetooth to the PC kind of pointless. I could live with that if I could figure out a way to use javaloader with it.


Even if I could simulate a serial port and use the -p option over bluetooth would be fine.


Any suggestions appreciated.

No, this is not supported.  javaloader does not support Bluetooth connections.

Re: javaloader.exe with bluetooth


That's a shame, because I keep wearing out the USB connectors on my test phones.  Warranty isn't worth much there because the replacements are apparently used phones, and wear out again quickly.  Once that happens, if the device is moved even slightly, it disconnects from tethering, because the connector's spring-contacts have become weak.



javaloader supports serial, and bluetooth can create a virtual serial port, so hopefully you can add support.  It will be much appreciated by many developers, I'm sure.
