    Hi All,

    Apologies if this is in the wrong forum but it didn't really seem to be an app question.

    I have a HTC Desire phone.

    I have some very snazzy and expensive light up juggling balls. The lighting sequences are written in text files and downloaded to the balls using a java app (currently I use my PC). The start command is also sent using this application.

    Basically I would like to get this application to run on my phone but the jar file wont open. I have looked into installing java on the phone and found something about Jbed. but was unable to install this using the ABD.

    Essentially if getting the app working and allowing the transfer of files to the balls is not possible If I could just connect to the balls using something like hyper terminal and send an ASCI 's' this would trigger the balls to start.

    If anyone could give me some advice it would be massively appreciated as I have spent several hours unsuccessfully searching online for an answer. I'd be happy to trade you juggling lessons. :)

    I'd be interested in using the usb out as a com port, but I have no idea. I think there was a story on someone who used their android phone to take data readings -- maybe there's something in there about how they did it.
