Wireless Communication Library Updated

Soft Service, a developer of wireless communications software, has released the new version of Wireless Communication Library (also known as Bluetooth Framework). Wireless Communication Library 6.5.8 is a VCL, MFC and .NET components library for software developers, enabling the addition of Bluetooth, IrDA and Serial support to applications.

WCL supports most Bluetooth drivers (BlueSoleil, Microsoft, Toshiba, WidComm/BroadComm), IrDA and Serial Ports. Along with a complete set of components for use with Borland Delphi, Borland Developer Studio, Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, Microsoft Visual C++ and Microsoft Visual Basic 6, Wireless Communication Library also includes a special component for development of Bluetooth Proximity Marketing software.

This component features Bluetooth device discovery, simultaneous data sending to multiple Bluetooth devices and listing the files to be sent. Moreover, this component allows managing the discovered devices, so that the application can selectively ignore certain devices and send advertisements to others. A number of various parameters provide an opportunity to make the sending process fast and steady.

WCL is compatible with WinXP (and higher) and features cross-platform support. There are three types of licenses: Lite, Personal, and Developer. All licenses can be used for developing commercial applications and are completely royalty free. A demo version is available at www.btframework.com/download.htm.
