This week's book giveaway is in the Other Open Source APIs forum. We're giving away four copies of Storm Applied and have Sean Allen, Peter Pathirana & Matthew Jankowski on-line! See this thread for details.
Seems like that would be a real task. It would require a nice fax machine on a network. You would need to know how to send the phone number that you are faxing properly and the text. Good Luck, Keep us posted on your success and failures. I have to admit I am curious. Have you ever heard of JINI from sun it is cool, but I am not sure how you would comlete this task.
Saravanan, Are you trying to connect to your Fax via the seriell/paralell port or are you using a modem ??? It might be easier to install a fax-software as your printer driver, then you could just print to the specific printer in stead of figuring out how the fax works... /Bamse
Hi! Well I m looking for such a solution too.. Actually I ve an exe that I downloaded.. itz called quickfax.. itz a command line utility that sends fax thru a modem @ serial port.. But then it aint registered so I cant redistribute it.. Again I ve also looked up the CAf from IBM.. a very useful set of packages.. Some how they ve made it EJBs.. and I dont understand thier language.. more over I guess they can be deployed on to the Websphere.. which is expensive and I dont intend to lose my weblogic.. I m currently looking at how I can use those pacakges for my own purpose as a fax sending util.. Let ya all know as soon as I m done.. Meanwile.. do post up every mile stone on yer looking for knowledge.. Regds Gautham Kasinath
