What is the best way to get a mobile phone's location? Can this be done in Java, or do i need to actaully buy some physical harware to plug into my phone?

Also, these messahges should automatically be sent to the mobile device depending on its location.

What is the best way to go about this? To use WAP and WML or use The J2ME?

Well J2ME and the JSR process has added the location api, which provides api calls to do GPS location based services on a mobile device. But not all devices have implemented this, so you have to find one that does.
