Does the TinyB bluetooth library work for non-intel hardware?

Hey,

I read the guide here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/java-for-bluetooth-le-apps https://software.intel.com/en-us/java-for-bluetooth-le-apps

On how to use the open-source TinyB library with Java for bluetooth LE applications.

It has information on how to use TinyB with Intel Edison boards.

Unfortunately I cannot use such boards, I have hardware that connects a sensor to an nRF52840 bluetooth chip by Nordic Semiconductor.

I need to send the bluetooth data to a Java desktop application and I am wondering if I can use TinyB to do this?

In the guide it says: "TinyB exposes simple C++ and Java APIs for using Bluetooth low energy devices."

So it seems it could work for any Bluetooth LE device? But I am not quite sure and I need to find out before I spend a lot of time researching this solution.

Any help is appreciated!

Hi Magnus_B,

 

 

I haven't used that library before, but after checking the information available in its GitHub page ( https://github.com/intel-iot-devkit/tinyb/), it seems that the library could be used with other platforms as well and not only with the Edison module. Although, I don't know if there are hardware limitations for the library so I cannot tell you if it will work with your hardware or not.

 

 

There are some software requirements that you may consider as well like CMake 3.1+, Glib/GIO 2.40+ and BlueZ. Anyhow, I recommend you to check the information in the GitHub page for additional details.

 

 

I also recommend you to ask directly in the GitHub page to get better details about your concern: https://github.com/intel-iot-devkit/tinyb/issues?page=1&q=is:issue+is:open

 

 

Have a nice day.

 

 

Regards,

 

Diego V.
