Does anybody have any experience sending SMS messages from a java application or servlet?  I would like to add some messaging functionality to an application and need some help in determining what direction to take.  I saw some posts regarding sms service providers, however I did not find any offering an api for this.  Of course, I would like a free service if possible, but I'm willing to at least considering something that has a reasonable cost.  The application is not time sensitive, but I'm also looking to have something fairly responsive.  An additional requirement is that it be able to send an sms worldwide.

Thanks,
David

You don't need a particular API. You can send SMS linking directly to the website offer you the service.
An SMS is sent using a telephone company, so if they open something to you (for sending SMS) ok. In other way you can only use the site permitting you to send SMS from Http.

Bye, Giant.
