Understanding SMS

SMS or Short Message Service is the ability to send and receive short messages or 'texts' between mobile phones. When you put it like this, it doesn't sound like such a big deal, but in the 10 odd years since the first SMS message was sent, these small text messages have rapidly grown to be a huge part of the mobile market. In Europe alone, there are in excess of two billion text messages sent every month.

Where does ColdFusion fit in here? At the moment, to create an SMS-based application takes a specialized application server and a ton of custom programming. In the same manner that ColdFusion has been making it simple to create dynamic Web pages for the last 10 years, it is now easy to create SMS based applications in ColdFusion.
