Well JavaMail is pretty easy to use for basic messages here's a tutorial http://www.tutorialspoint.com/java/java_sending_email.htm

The only way I've sent sms messages is to email to the appropriate address usually looks like <phone number>@provider.net

So I either have a drop down menu to choose provider or have them email me from the phone. I'm sure there's a better way but never dug too deeply.

It's not what your program can do, it's what your users do with the program.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
