Hi,

I am trying to simulate a situation where a java program (J2SE or J2EE) will send an sms to mobile and then receive some reply back from the mobile.

Can any one point some hints in this direction ?

Thank you.

Best Regards
Ayub

Hi,

I was able to simulate sending an sms to webserver and receiving a reply back using Sun wireless development kit 2.5.2

Midlet opens an Http connection to the application running on app server sends the string. Servlet running on app server replies back to the midlet.

Both are running on the same physical machine.


Can any one point me how to implent it on a real mobile without downloading any midlet on the mobile ?

I searched on google and found that I will need a SMSC gateway. I am not able to understand how to build it..or is there a free SMSC gateway available to try..

How can my servlet running on application server get an sms sent from a real mobile ?

Any clues will be greatly helpful.

Thanks and Regards
Ayub
