Rarely are any coding changes required or necessary. The most common integration involves the Command Line ASCII Interface. Here are some ways to use PagGate's modules to integrate with other applications.
This is the interface most frequently used for Integration. This interface allows for the scanning of a predetermined file for text messages or for command line text messaging (text messaging from within existing applications).
More and more modern applications are building in the ability to send email. If your application supports email, it can easily be integrated with PageGate by using PageGate's email interface. The GetMail interface can be used to enable PageGate to be integrated with applications running on different platforms (Unix, Mac, etc.). Please refer to the GetMail section of this manual for more details.
This interface allows for the scanning of a serial port for messages. The GetSerial interface enables PageGate to monitor a serial connection for data. This interface is often used to accept text that would normally be sent to a printer, and extract out message information from that data.
