I can give you and idea of how you would do this using our Now SMS/MMS Gateway software.

Basically, NowSMS is a type of SMS and MMS middleware. In this particular case, it would manage the connection to the GSM/GPRS modem ... sending and receiving SMS. And it would interface to your database application through an HTTP script that you create.

This HTTP script would act as glue between NowSMS and your database application.

We call this facility "2-way" SMS, and this facility is described in more detail at the following link:

http://www.nowsms.com/documentation/ProductDocumentation/2_way_sms_support.htm

But to give you the highlights, basically, you configure NowSMS to use the GSM modem as its SMSC.

You then configure NowSMS to call your HTTP script whenever an SMS message is received. NowSMS passes the details about the SMS message as parameters in the HTTP request. Your script can then interface with the database, and can return back a response that NowSMS will return to the sender.

This HTTP script can run on the web server of your choice (separate from NowSMS), so it could be ASP, PHP, Perl, or whatever scripting language you are most comfortable working with.
