I am currently trying to port certain BLE platforms onto Alljoyn, though before I begin with the process I would like to see the available code (btle-transport branch) work for myself and as such would like to know what is the setup that I would require to test the BLE functionality of that code.
Here's what I know/believe(I could be wrong):
The AJTCL code under the feature branch has BLE support for Arduino using the nRF8001 Nordic semiconductor for BLE (ajtcl/target/arduino/aj_target_serial.c).
The AJTCL code uses the serial interface to transport messages to the Arduino Board which is then used a radio.
The Standard Core source form the feature branch only works for linux (Link for that thread)
The questions that I have are:
What would the setup for this look like?
Is there any tutorial for what I would need to do to setup Arduino with BLE?
If I am running the Standard Core app on a Linux PC, can I use a BLE dongle to give it the required functionality?
And finally, what is the size of the messages that are being transported through BLE (and where in the Source code can I look to reference this)?
