Are you able to do this with either VB or Java?

dont have deep coding knowledge abt vb / java
but i think it will be much easier in VB

an alternate way is that any service that query the specified oracle table with regular interval to see if there's any thing in the outbox to send.

so in this way, we can just insert our msg in that table with status send and the service query table, pick the data, and send sms. (an approach in ozeki 3rd party software but its not free.)

i found a file gnoki for that, but its not functioning, as sending bulk sms will raise performance issues.

===========
actually the requirement is for a school software that when the result is declared the parents are notified by SMS alert.

similarly on depositing fee, exams, notifications etc..
=============

any further assistance is highly appriciated.

awaiting for some practical solution.

You don't need a mobile telephone to send an SMS message.

I suggest you google 'SMS services' or look at something like 'www.smspup.com.au' which offers a subscription based web service which is much cheaper than having to use a dedicated physical device.

thank u.
my problem is solved.

i've created an sms engine in forms 6 that sends sms via GSM modem connected to a virtual com port in windows.

the engine collects the data from a specified table (outbox) and send the sms to the desired number (also collected from the field). Its working, but m still working on it.

simple, using the host command (i've used the d2k lib to excute the command) of gnokii.

gnokii is an open source program that provide several options to communicate with the attached mobile/gsm modem.

try googling over gnokii to find more details for that.
