Replacement OF comm.jar

Hi Everybody

Sun is removed the link to download comm.jar from its site. This mean there should be some alternative library to connect to COM port.

I am trying to send SMS from my PC using GSM modem. All the code sample I found over the net is using the comm API. Which is I thought depreciated.

Please tell if comm.jar is the only solution or there is other way to do this.

Thank You & Best Regards,

Did you try Google ? I found a couple of Java SMS libraries with just a quick search.

hi Joanne Neal

Ya I look over google also and there is smpp-api and open-smpp library available. This need account in SIM service provider.

I dont want to go to them I just need to connect my GSM device and start sending SMS.

Thanks and Regards

The has information on where to get a Windows version of this API, and also points to alternative libraries.

(As an aside, I've shortened your signature which was excessively long and distracting from the actual content.)
