Java API for Kannel SMS/WAP gateway

We are proud to present Java API for Kannel. You can use the API to :

  1. Send SMS to a single recipient
  2. Send SMS to multiple recipients (bulk SMS)
  3. Send SMS with priority
  4. Send WAP Push message to a single recipient
  5. Configure send rate (SMS/Second)

Below is an example use of the API

public static void main(String[] args) {

 SMSManager smsManager = SMSManager.getInstance();

 // We can change the prefetch size of the background worker thread
 smsManager.setSmsMessagesPrefetchSize(30);

 // We can change the send SMS rate
 smsManager.setSmsMessagesSendRate(65);

 try {

  // Send SMS to a single destination
  smsManager.sendSMS("localhost", "13013", "foo", "bar", "sender_mobile_number", "receiver_mobile_number", "the_message");

  // Send SMS to a single destination with a specific priority and
  // send rate
  smsManager.sendSMS("localhost", "13013", "foo", "bar", "sender_mobile_number", "receiver_mobile_number", "the_message", SMSManager.MESSAGE_PRIORITY_3);

  // Send SMS to multiple recipients
  List<string> recipientsGroupA = new ArrayList<string>();

  recipientsGroupA.add("receiver_mobile_number_1");
  recipientsGroupA.add("receiver_mobile_number_2");
  recipientsGroupA.add("receiver_mobile_number_3");
  recipientsGroupA.add("receiver_mobile_number_4");
  recipientsGroupA.add("receiver_mobile_number_5");

  smsManager.sendSMS("localhost", "13013", "foo", "bar", "sender_mobile_number", recipientsGroupA, "the_message");

  // Send SMS to multiple recipients with a specific priority and
  // send rate
  List<string> recipientsGroupB = new ArrayList<string>();

  recipientsGroupB.add("receiver_mobile_number_1");
  recipientsGroupB.add("receiver_mobile_number_2");
  recipientsGroupB.add("receiver_mobile_number_3");
  recipientsGroupB.add("receiver_mobile_number_4");
  recipientsGroupB.add("receiver_mobile_number_5");

  smsManager.sendBulkSMS("localhost", "13013", "foo", "bar", "sender_mobile_number", recipientsGroupB, "the_message", SMSManager.MESSAGE_PRIORITY_7);

  // Send a WAP Push request to a single mobile recipient
  smsManager.sendWAPPush("localhost", "8080", "receiver_mobile_number", SMSManager.WAP_PUSH_RECEIVER_TYPE_MOBILE, "the_message", "http://localhost", 3);

 } catch (Exception ex) {
   ex.printStackTrace();
 }

 // Stops the background worker
 // smsManager.stopSMSManagerWorker()

}

The API is hosted on Sourceforge. You can download it from here

Hello biruk,

Unfortunately the current version of our Kannel API supports only “send” functionality.
