Hi

I would like to know how to send a text message from within an application. I want to be alerted when certain things happen with this program. Unfortunately I havent been able to find what Im looking on the internet and my knowledge of web services is limited at best (although Im trying to fix that!)

thanks.

If you go to

http://sourceforge.net/search/

and put in

Java SMS (require all words) you'll get quite a few entries back fro free SMS APIs, such as http://sourceforge.net/projects/jsmsengine/

There are several tools/APIs around that allow you to create code that talks to SMSCs.  One that I've started looking into is:

http://smppapi.sourceforge.net/

You'll also need to find an SMS aggregator, or a company that allows you direct access to an SMSC.

This looks like a good one (on the surface), but I haven't had time to dig into it more deeply yet:

hm...i don't know what do you mean: sening SMS over internet from server side app, or sening SMS from local machine through connecte GSM modem(phone), but if you are interested in first approach, i think it depends on your GSM provider - cause it can limit such service, as sening SMS not through your phone. But often GSM proviers let you sen SMS through web-site, if so you can write programm, which will populete web-site form fields and 'press' submit button.
