obex-data-server web and request for documentation

March 5, 2008 on 8:14 pm | In GNOME, obex-data-server | 2 Comments

I would like to clarify where are the places to find info about obex-data-server on the net.

Homepage/wiki: http://wiki.muiline.com/obex-data-server/

News/Release announcements: http://tadas.dailyda.com/blog/category/obex-data-server/

Bug tracker: http://bugs.muiline.com/

Bug tracker is integrated with wiki, so you can create pages for particular bugs by choosing “wiki” in bug tracker.


obex-data-server needs some documentation like manual page (bug #49), building HOWTO, using Session HOWTO, using Server Howto and possibly some other stuff. All this should be in wiki, so that it’s easy to find. Feel free to contribute.

  1. I’ve been trying to get a BlueTooth app up on a semi-Linux system for several days, and have discovered such wonders as D-Bus, BlueZ, and now obex-data-server… which would be nice if I could only figure out how to use it.

    I feel in a continual state of “guess!”. I don’t even know what/if need to call anything to set it up. And so of the stuff on the documentation page ( at http://svn.muiline.com/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/obex-data-server/tags/REL-0_3_3/dbus-api.txt ) could be slightly more helpful.

    For instance, the first method:

    object CreateBluetoothSession(string address, string pattern)

    appears to return an object. I wonder what type that object might be, and if it has a related *.h file anywhere? Or maybe it is an object, and I
    shouldn’t call it????

    You must have some code lying around somewhere to test obex-data-server. Posting at least that (and
    perhaps sending it to me, or maybe a link) would
    something of a help.



    ps: Or maybe appearently cryptic documentation would all be crystal clear if I spent a month or two reading through D-Bus and BlueZ code…
    my apologies if that is my error.

  2. Hi,
    CreateBluetoothSession returns object of type org.openobex.Session. I know documentation isn’t helpful enough at the moment, but I’m still busy developing stuff.

    Check out http://svn.muiline.com/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/obex-data-server/tags/REL-0_3_3/test/ for sample code. There are two python scripts for creating session and server, they should be helpful.
