SMPP Component

Available as of Camel 2.2

This component provides access to an SMSC (Short Message Service Center) over the SMPP protocol to send and receive SMS. The JSMPP is used.

Starting with Camel 2.9, you are also able to execute ReplaceSm, QuerySm, SubmitMulti, CancelSm and DataSm.

Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml for this component:

URI format

If no username is provided, then Camel will provide the default value smppclient.
If no port number is provided, then Camel will provide the default value 2775.
Camel 2.3: If the protocol name is "smpps", camel-smpp with try to use SSLSocket to init a connection to the server.

You can append query options to the URI in the following format, ?option=value&option=value&...

JSMPP library

Icon

See the documentation of the JSMPP Library for more details about the underlying library.

Exception handling

This component supports the general Camel exception handling capabilities.
Camel 2.8 onwards: When the SMPP consumer receives a DeliverSm or DataSm short message and the processing of these messages fails, you can also throw a ProcessRequestException instead of handle the failure. In this case, this exception is forwarded to the underlying JSMPP library which will return the included error code to the SMSC. This feature is useful to e.g. instruct the SMSC to resend the short message at a later time. This could be done with the following lines of code:

Please refer to the SMPP specification for the complete list of error codes and their meanings.
