I'd like to add IM and Text Messaging capability to my Spring-based Java application. Can anyone tell me what tools to use and how to go about it?

Update:

One quick & dirty solution to cell phone TXT is to use the carriers' email interface. The big limitation is that messages are limited to 140 characters, 160 if the sender's email address is included. I found the following list of carrier email suffixes:

10digitcellnumber@vtext.com (Verizon),
10digitcellnumber@tmomail.net (T-Mobile),
10digitcellnumber@mobile.mycingular.com (Cingular),
10digitcellnumber@cingularme.com (Cingular),
10digitcellnumber@mobile.att.net (AT&T),
10digitcellnumber@voicestream.net (Voicestream),
10digitcellnumber@messaging.nextel.com (Nextel),
10digitcellnumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com (Sprint PCS)
10digitcellnumber@vmobl.com (Virgin Mobile)

This solves the TXT problem to a limited extent, although I would prefer a solution that didn't have the size limitation.

I still don't know how to do IM's however. Has anyone else done this?
