Service discovery protocols allow clients to discover services without actual knowledge of the locations or characteristics of the services. Jini and Bluetooth SDP are two common service discovery protocols. They may meet each other in many environments. But there is still no general architecture to bring them together. We introduce an architecture for Bluetooth client to discover Jini services. We introduce the JiniTM profile for Bluetooth, which runs in three modes of operations, namely, surrogate, bridge, and client. We describe the implementation of a Jini/Bluetooth surrogate as well as the bridge which acts as a proxy and allows a multihop connection to a Jini network. To enable reliable end to end connection, we also incorporate session management into our design.
