Run the two Java examples, do they work for you?
i did a small testwrapper only implementing the enumerate

It does work. It lists the following devices on my PC.

VID = 0x046A PID = 0xB090 Manufacturer = Cherry Product = USB keyboard Path = \\?\hid#vid_046a&pid_b090&mi_01&col01#7&deb9ec1&0&0000#{4d1e55b2-f16f-11cf-88cb-001111000030}
VID = 0x0B05 PID = 0x17BE Manufacturer = ASUS Computer Inc. Product = ASUS GAMING MOUSE GX950 Path = \\?\hid#vid_0b05&pid_17be&mi_01&col02#7&3ada128&0&0001#{4d1e55b2-f16f-11cf-88cb-001111000030}

Hi Erel and DonManfred,

I cannot run the examples since they are .java files and I don't know how to run those files. But if run this partial B4J wrapper there https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/how-to-get-data-from-hid-device.101106/#post-639232 I am able to list the device connect to it but still not to send and receive data to and from the device.

edit: Maybe this library is a better choice, it seems pretty well written.

Thank you for your time.

You should be able to read the data with that code. It correctly sets a listener:
B4X:
dev.setInputReportListener(new InputReportListener() {
    @Override
    public void onInputReport(HidDevice source, byte Id, byte[] data, int len) {
     System.out.printf("onInputReport: id %d len %d data ", Id, len);
      for (int i = 0; i < len; i++)
       System.out.printf("%02X ", data[i]);
       System.out.println();
    }
   });
