I'm new to mobile development and before I start messing about with it all I wondered if what I planned is even possible.
On a nokia 6310i, which is aparently MIDP 1.0, can you create a java application that will stay resident in memory and search for a bluetooth device (PC) every 10 seconds for instance, upon finding it then download data via the bluetooth connection. It's part of a home automation system i've written.. when the mobile phone comes into range with the controlling station I intend to turn on lighting, music etc as the person is obviously home.
Is this even possible or am I severly confused as to the capabilities of java applications on mobile phones and the facilities available to the developer... can you even use the bluetooth/irda facilities from your own apps and can the apps even stay resident in memory on the phone.
Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated, although I'm not a newbie developer I am when it comes to mobile phones and it's all quite confusing until I start to look into it more.
Thanks in advance.
