Many companies today are extending their enterprise applications to the mobile channel. One of the key requirements for enterprise apps is the ability to send short messages (as notifications or alerts) to mobile clients. Notifications drive user engagement and can be based on events or triggered by user behavior or by some pre-condition. IBM® Worklight® V5.0.5 provides support for sending SMS/text notifications to mobile devices in addition to smart phone push notifications. This article explains how you can set up and send SMS notifications with Worklight, using a retail banking scenario as an example. Sample mobile app source is provided to illustrate how to subscribe and receive SMS notifications. This content is part of the IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal.
