My cell-phone company has a Web site where I can enter a cell phone# and a short message. It then sends the message...
to my cell-phone as a text page. I would like to do this directly from the AS/400 unattended. Can I POST to an external HTTP server without going through a browser? How?
If you check with your cell company, chances are that they are sending an email to your cell phone number @ the cell phone company. With AT&T it works like this: The message originator addresses the message to the subscriber's 10-digit AT&T Digital PCS number followed by @mobile.att.net. That's it. If you want to invoke a POST to an external HTTP server, there are plenty of Java examples you can use. You should be able to find some examples at javasource.com.
