hi guys,

I am presently working on an application that requires me to send a midlet jar file from my webserver to the clients mobile phone on request for it by the client(who will request for it by SMS).as i want it to be sent to the clients phone like an SMS mesage but this time it will be the jar file so once the client opens the message it starts installing.
now the problem is i dont know if there are any API classes that can help me in achieving this?

any expert suggestions/help?
Thanks in advance.

Hi man
Create a WML file, say myApp.wml and put this file,*.jar and the *.jad file in your into a place where it can be accessed via an HTTP server. href in the *.wml file must point the link your *.jad file.

hi deboj,

I know that technique, but that is not what i want to do.
I want it to go into the mobile from the webserver like an SMS.
The client will receive it like an SMS but when they open it it will start installing depending if it has an installer running on it.

ok here is the scenario.
a client sends a particular sms code to our sms/web server, on receiving that code we use it to fetch a midlet for the client.
NOW, the issue is to send this fetched midlet back to the client who sent the previous sms.
How can i do this?
thanks in advance

Hello. Are you already set up for two way SMS messaging? Your gateway provider may provide, through a callback, API, or similar with the originating phone number and message contents of the received SMS.

You could then parse the message contents for the desired application and send a SMS push to the originating phone number. Here are the steps in brief:

1.Client sends SMS to your phone number (gateway number where you receive SMS messages)
2.Gateway notifies application server that an SMS has been received or application server polls for new messages
3.Application server parses the new message and sends an SMS push message with the application URL via the gateway.

I use Clickatell as my provider. There is plenty of documentation on two way SMS on their site.

Thanks.
