This article shows how easy it is to use the JSR-82 (Bluetooth) API to access the data from a Bluetooth-enabled GPS receiver, parse the data streams, and obtain the coordinates of current location. Additionally, you'll see how to formulate the HTTP request to access an external mapping service, use JSR-172 (XML Parsing and Web Services) API to parse the result, and make the final request to obtain the map image. Both JSR-82 and JSR-172 are included in the Java ME MSA standard.
