Oracle Database, Send SMS through SMS Gateway

 

Tested on 10g 10.2.0.3 database with default installation(no additional packages were installed to achieve the results)

There are many APIs (developed by 3rd parties) which will allow you to send SMS from a Oracle database on demand. Many times such APIs would become costly, depending upon your requirements.

Here, we are providing a zero cost solution, incase if your SMS gateway provider allows you to send SMS through a web service portal.

You may wrap the entire procedure and call it against a table trigger or through a button click available with user form(s)

SET serveroutput ON
SET Define OFF

DECLARE
    HTTP_REQ      UTL_HTTP.REQ;
    HTTP_RESP     UTL_HTTP.RESP;
    URL_TEXT      VARCHAR2(32767);
    URL VARCHAR2(2000);
    
     SMS_MSG VARCHAR2(160) := 'Congratulations! Your database has been configured propoerly for sending SMS through a 3rd party SMS Gateway';
    
BEGIN
    DBMS_OUTPUT.ENABLE(1000000);
--Based on your service provider, the following link format may differ from
--What we have specified below!    

URL := 'http://yourwebsmsdomain.com/alerts/api/web2sms.php?username=demo&password=demo2&to=95xxxxxxx&sender=ODBSMS&message='||
UTL_URL.Escape(SMS_MSG,TRUE); 
--UTL_URL.Escape manages escape characters like SPACE between words in a message.
    
  

    HTTP_REQ  := UTL_HTTP.BEGIN_REQUEST(URL);
   
    UTL_HTTP.SET_HEADER(HTTP_REQ, 'User-Agent', 'Mozilla/4.0');
    HTTP_RESP := UTL_HTTP.GET_RESPONSE(HTTP_REQ);

    -- Process Request
    LOOP
        BEGIN
            URL_TEXT := null;
            UTL_HTTP.READ_LINE(HTTP_RESP, URL_TEXT, TRUE);
            DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE(URL_TEXT);

            EXCEPTION
                WHEN OTHERS THEN EXIT;
        END;
    END LOOP;

    UTL_HTTP.END_RESPONSE(HTTP_RESP);
END;

Enjoy another quality solution from us :)

        Dear Brother

        I need to know the coding where my SMS transmit from my system to the mobile. Mobile number is in my table. If you have a solution then request you to forward it. Thank you.

        Thank you dear I just run your given form and compilation error on MY_SEND_SMS and not found any procedure or function.

      4. Did you receive my email yesterday? You need to create the database level procedure using sms.sql which has the procedure pl/sql. Before proceeding, do you have a subscription for the SMS gateway?
