You may consider to use:
1. JMS
2. JMS with MDB
3. Web Services over JMS

In addition, depends on the format of SMS, you may need to decode it and wrap the content as the format of JMS.

Nick, Thanks for the quick reply post.

Cud u pls guide me to a tutorial/document that describe these approaches and then go down to API/Code level for sample refernce implementations.

I am very new to the world of mobile computing, although i have been using a cell phone for last 6 months or so

Will appreciate a guide map to help me on in the learning curve.

Just one more point, I want to use something freely available/downloadable on the net.

Thnx

Just sending "messages" to a JMS queue doesn't make them reach a mobile phone's SMS inbox... In order to integrate with a mobile operator's SMSC, you need to either
1) buy an SMS gateway product such as FirstHop Message Router and sign contracts with some mobile operators in order to connect to their SMSC's
2) pay for someone else to do the integration stuff with mobile operators and just use the proprietary API provided by the integrator (some alternatives include SimpleWire and MobileWay)

Oh, and I'd strongly suggest going with option 2).
It's a LOT easier that way.

Not to mention cheaper unless you expect a massive volume of messages
