    Default Wifi Data Acquisition System

    I'm currently doing a project on Wireless Data Acquisition System.
    I have purchased a product form LinkSprite (LS-UART to WiFi)
    UART to WiFi (NOT including antenna)-Smart Street Light Control System-LinkSprite Technologies (Link of the product purchased)
    Now I wold like to interface this wireless module to a microcontroller from microchip company , PIC16LF877A.
    Now, Im almost done with the transmitting side with the help from Linksprite with the source codes. But for the receiving side, i would like to use Java to receive the data and display it out. But the problem is... I have no idea to do the Java coding for the receiving side.
    Any helps would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you very much and have a nice day.

    Well, the Wifi module came with source codes in C language for interfacing with the microcontroller, and to transmit data. They didnt provide any API for Java.

    There is the Java Native Interface (JNI) framework that could be used to connect to the C programs.

    Hi STSYew,

    Looks like we are working on the same problem, except I am working on the server side and having problems finding a low-cost WiFi based DAS. The server side is a bit more complex that can be explained here, so if you are still working on this, please contact me at here
