In this paper, we address the design of spontaneous networks using a peer to peer (P2P) and Bluetooth technology. A spontaneous network is a small infrastructureless network formed when a group of people come together to participate in some collaborative activity. In this work, we develop a base library and application work ground for easy spontaneous networks development. Based on it, we present an experimental application that provides spontaneous networks with context and transparent services to interchange resources between peers. We describe the overall network architecture and present details of the implementation steps taken to create our P2P and Bluetooth based application. Finally we run some experiments in a small testbed to evaluate the performance and system behaviour. We present our findings in term of the duration of the inquiry procedure and throughput performance with respect to distance and node speed.
