The project is not developed in the best possible way… but it works. Is
my first cell phone app and also my first bluetooth app, so I was
copying and pasting a lot, ergo disorder… The project is divided in 3
parts:

-   A Visual Basic 2010 project to control the spotify player via
    SendMessage and such things
-   A Java SE project for NetBeans to make the bluetooth server and
    interact with the VB application
-   A Java ME project for NetBeans to make the mobile application
