Hello,

    RTI DDS provides a "Pluggable Transport Framework" that enables the plugin of transports to the infrastructure.  We have transports built for UDP/IP, TCP/IP, Shared memory and others.  At this time, there is not a transport for native Bluetooth, however, one could be created within this framework.  If there were an IP interface in front of the BlueTooth interface, then this would certainly be a possibility.  We have run over Infiniband where there has been an IP interface in front of that transport.

Note that if there is an IP layer over bluetooth as the one described here http://bluez.sourceforge.net/contrib/HOWTO-PAN then there is no need to build a special trasnsport for RTI DDS. You could use the built-in transport as DDS will just see a normal IP interface.

If you are trying to communicat over bluetooth directlly without an IP layer, then you need to build a custom transport as Bert mentioned. This example on how to create a custom RTI DDS transport is a good place to get started.
