What is the easiest / simplest way to connect my java program to the world?
Simply put, my program takes a little user input, and returns the answer.
I would now like to make my program available to others.
In order of preference:
1. User sends SMS text and gets back an SMS text (not everyone owns a computer or smart phone)
2. User send email and gets back an email
3. User interacts via web browser. Does this necessitate converting my program to a servlet?
OK I've managed to get JavaMail to work with Gmail. I can send and receive emails.
I've failed to get Hotmail to work.
Thanks for the comment about SMS Gateways. I have one in mind, but would be pleased to hear from anyone who has succeeded
in sending and receiving SMS text messages from their Java programs.
