abap code to send sms

Hai Everyone,

I am developing a small leave application. as of now functionally everything is working perfectly. but as an added feature to this application I wanted to provide an option where employees could apply for leave by sending sms as well as the response from the team lead can be done using sms itself. so, please provide me some ideas on how to implement this.

    Hi,

    Sending an SMS from SAP is simple as there are many Vendors(some offer free service with restrictions on no. of chars etc) who expose Web Services which does this, you just need to consume this web service and invoke it within your program. There are many threads/blogs on SDN for this.

    However, receiving an SMS is different game altogether, you might need a GSM/3G modem(software) connected to a service provider etc or use a SMS gateway. There are many software which can do this for ex: Diafaan etc.

    Regards,

    Chen

    • Hi.,

      As I mentioned that web service in that blog is down. It is not working. i jus gave u an idea how to do it. U have to use Web Service for ur requirement., Search for some free web services for sending sms.

      UR company has to buy a web service from mobile vendors and have to use that web service.

      Thanks & Regards
