    Default How do I add Java code to Qt Android apps via Qt Creator

    Greetings.

    I have a Qt 5.1.1 app running on Android that needs to manage Bluetooth connections. It appears that I’ll need to write a custom Java Bluetooth management class that I can then use JNI to communicate with.

    My question is: How do I add the Java code to my Qt Creator (v2.8.1) project so that it gets built into my app?

    Thank you

    I don't think you can do that. Qt apps are C++ apps with some static launcher code written in Java.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.

    Is the external Qt Bluetooth module useful? http://qt-project.org/wiki/Qt-Add-ons-Modules

    Hi Chris

    Thanks for the info, but it looks like the code you pointed me to relies on the bluez linux bluetooth driver layer which, according to what I've read, is not guaranteed to be available on all android target devices. Since the Java layer (allegedly) provides me with that guarantee, I would like to use it if at all possible.

    Thank you
    Scott
