bluetooth device driver
 
I'm familiar with how to do a WDM device driver but Bluetooth.
I have a change for a side job but I'm not familiar with Bluetooth
This is the AD I saw,
"We are a biomedical startup with a device scheduled to be fabbed for
prototype next week. The device transmits information via Bluetooth
(Philips BGB203). The information is in the form of custom packets.
You will have access the DSP Programmer who created the packet format.
On the PC side, there is a Java suite tested and functional that uses
fake packets generated locally by the machine to process and display
data. We need someone now to program the device driver (Windows XP)."

Is a device driver really needed or will an application that can
interface with the loaded system bluetooth device driver work? If so,
how can I do that.

Are there any books I can read on how connect and control a Bluetooth
device?

Can GCC be used to build a device driver?

Re: bluetooth device driver
 
you will not a write a driver for the local radio, rather you will write a
driver to implement the protocol exposed by the remote device. what protocol
is it running ? is it directly on l2cap or layered over rfcomm?

gcc for a driver? no, the only supported compiler is the one provided for
free in the wdk.
