wifi control from Java application

The goal we want to achieve is control over Probe Request from a Java application level (under Android of course).

The standard Java API provides a set of options to check response, however we would like to have control over sending it.

May be I do not seek it properly within standard packeges like android.net.wifi

A harsh way to force sending a Probe Request is to switch off then on the wifi in mobile device. which can be realized with WifiManagerclass. however the question is whether the possibility remains not restricted in recent Android API versions.

I will appreciate any hint how to solve it or where to look for a solution.
