Working Java sample code

Main Code Page | PHP | Python | C# | Java
This is working sample of a Java console app that actually sends SMS. This code can be used to send SMS through the Bulk SMS API. It was tested and working perfectly. All you need to do is fill the missing information - $username, $token, $destinations. The mobile numbers in this sample are for Bulk SMS technical team and should be removed when implementing the Web Services in your applications. The Webservice username and token (get it from the User Configuration) is case sensitive. You can integrate this code into the rest of your Java Application.

You can create your own Bulk SMS account. Sign Up here! Your Account will be created with FREE SMS credits for testing. Create your Sender ID before testing. After you login, go to Settings, then Manage Sender ID. You will not be able to send SMS without a Sender ID. First test your account from our system before using these Code examples!
