Use a pc's bluetooth adapter to check for your cellphone

    I'm looking to do presence detection for my pc. I was hoping to write
    a java application to work with my pc's bluetooth adapater and simply
    check for my device address. If it can no longer connect I would then
    make different actions based on what I would like.

    The problem is there doesn't seem to be a whole lot on bluetooth. From
    what I've read, javax.bluetooth is meant to run entirely on
    cellphones. Is this incorrect? Can anyone provide direction on this
    project?

    Thanks,
    Joel

    Yes, JSR 82 is intended for J2ME. Try looking here: http://www.javabluetooth.org/.
    They have an implementation of jsr 82 that also works on j2se,
    apparently.

    certain if it's my pc or the examples :(
