I have developed a struts application in which user can register and his/her phonenumber is entered.
If the registration is successful (his details are successful entered into the database) ,
I want to send SMS confirming the user's registration.
1. How to send SMS to this user ? This should be free.
2. What is the best web hosting site that will allow me to do this?
Struts is an implementation of the Front Controller Pattern. It has nothing to do with tasks like sending SMS messages. Our IO FAQ has some information about sending SMS messages.
Our Servlets FAQ has information on several Java-friendly hosting companies.
On my system, when i connect my phone through USB cable i can send SMS messages and even read SMS messages through javax.comm.* API
On my web hosting site, my phone cannot be connected right ? So i must use a different approach to send SMS but not with my existing code.
I have developed web using Struts , now i need to integrate the SMS sending part somewhere in the application ..
1) So what is the approach to follow ?
2) I have seen some sms sending website , will it be possible to send sms through those website ?
