I do not think there is a free SMS toolkit from SUN. The reason is simple: you cannot send SMS without access to the wireless operator's SMSC. Access to SMSC costs money. Some toolkit (e.g., jSMS) work around this by requiring you to pair your PC with a working phone. Other toolkits (e.g., simplewire) provides access to their gateway servers which have pre-arranged deals with carriers.
However, if you are only interested in *sending* SMS messages (not receiving them), you can use those email-SMS gateways. Almost all carriers provide special email address for each of their phone number -- email addressed to those addresses are automatically forwarded as SMS. This is easily doable with the JavaMail API.

Hi, there are some SMS toolkit around, but none of them really allow you to access SMSC freely. SMSC is a property of carrier and they won't let you spam it. Nonetheless, if you are interested, you can check out the some Java based SMS toolkit that you need to interfacing the SMSC. Try the following links to see a list of them.
