I'd like to develope a stand-alone java application which talks to my local SMSC. Does now sms provide API's to enable this?

The primary API for communcating with NowSMS is HTTP based.

In the "Documentation" section of the web site, you'll find information about the HTTP interface for submitting messages. Essentially, you open an HTTP connection to the NowSMS server, and issue an HTTP GET request with URL parameters set for the message recipient(s) and the type of message that you want to send.

For receiving SMS messages, NowSMS can call an HTTP script (which could be a Java applet) running on a web server, passing details about the received message. A more thorough description of this feature can be found in the "2-way SMS" section of the "Documentation" area of our web site.

The interface to NowSMS remains the same, regardless of the protocols that are being used by NowSMS for connecting to the SMSC(s).

We support SOAP over HTTP for MMS (MM7).

But no SOAP over SMTP for SMS.

Are you looking to submit messages in to NowSMS using this approach? Or are you looking to have NowSMS connect to a service provider using this approach?
