    This is rather easily accomplished using an SMS gateway provider such as Clickatell. You need to get an account with them and then you will send the SMS message through them using your account (includes ability to receive SMS back via short code or long code (non-US)). For keeping track of the messages, yes you can use your web application. Just store each message and all recipient mobile #s in a database table along with a timestamp and you will have your historical data.
  3. dear Sir, do we need any integration between the web and the sms provider? how to keep track as the sms are sent from the sms provider. hope to hear from you. thank you
  4. You can use any SMS provider (e.g. Clicatel) or your own GSM modem for sending SMS's. See for example SMS gateway in JSOS
