Hey Raymond, I'm an newbie outsider here but I'm interested if you considered doing this as a web app rather than a desktop app? At first glance, a web app would seem a better solution, both for users and for you the developer.

Bulletmark, Java was chosen for system independence. Unfortunately that also carries with it unnecessary complexity and bloat. The job is actually an extremely simple one for a shell script, and I understand that some users have done that, but where does that leave Windows users? Another approach I was playing with once was to put a browser menu command and user javascript on the user facility URL to automate that, but again, a certain browser can't handle the concept. I think Exetel is stuck with Java for a while yet.

Well with that description the perfect candidate would be python. E.g. wxPython or PyQt gui apps are completely portable and look great on all platforms. Maybe consider these next time? :)

I'm still not sure why the intelligence and data can't be on the server side though so a web app framework (e.g RoR, Django, GAE) would work well.

Python makes this sort of thing easy, when you can combine scripting with GUI programming, but can you explain the need to install the package first to the average Windows user? Even so, it would be nice to see an Exesomething look for portability away from the complexity of Sun Java.

py2exe or pyInstaller essentially solve that problem. They bundle the entire script + python into a single windows exe.

Anyone else having a problem with the Java eXeSMS not recording sent messages in the "Message History". I've checked that messages are being sent by asking the recipients and they have confirmed that they have received the message. I have eXeSMS sending messages and keeping settings and Address book entries on both Vista and Ubuntu. But on both systems it recorded the first message sent and occasionally some messages get recorded in the History. I get the message that the SMS was sent to the Exetel server with success in the "SMS Progress Form" dialog.

I can see my SMS history by going to the Exetel members pages, so it's not a big issue.

I'm using version 2.1 on both operating systems Vista and Ubuntu

Details of the Ubuntu System I am on now.....
Linux 2.6.31-20-generic #57-Ubuntu x86_64
java version "1.6.0_15"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_15-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.1-b02, mixed mode)
eXeSMS
VERSION 2.1 FOR OTHER OS

I did a search in this forum and couldn't see anyone else has reported this problem. I think it might be a bug as I get the same on both platforms. Any feed back would be welcome, thanks.

Just wondering if anyone from the Exetel Dev Team actually follow the forum posts... Im only seeing questions here, but no answers..?
Ive got the exeSMSjava_otherOS java app, the hardware, the OS and the correct version of Java.... but it does not work.!
Wondering if having the 32-bit and the 64bit versions both loaded in OSX SL wold be an issue?
