The SMS Forum is pleased to announce the release of
SMAP V1.0 Draft 09 for public review.

SMAP (Short Message Application Protocol) is an XML-based protocol designed to provide equivalent functionality to SMPP V3.4 but using an XML schema as opposed to binary PDU format of SMPP.

The protocol is still under design and the draft released is by no means frozen. In draft form, the specification is not yet ready for application development.

We would also like to confirm that this protocol is designed to meet market needs for XML-based applications. It is not intended to be a replacement for SMPP. Instead the protocol is an XML alternative and may prove more applicable in certain circumstances.

We take this opportunity to invite comments from application developers and protocol users. Please post comments to this topic. Our XML experts will be monitoring this board and will provide assistance where possible.

To download the draft. click on the Documents link and the on Protocol Specifications

I think that SMAP would be a great help for developing applications that deal with a large amount of text-messaging to the phones, but how would this be implemented in current systems?  I'm not a great expert on this obviously, so how would one make their existing SMSCs, etc work using SMAP or would that be totally up to the SMSC vendors themselves?

Minor editorial comment
Section 2.1.2.4 page 16
The section consists of the text "asas". I guess this means To Be Done (TBD)? I there a typographical convention used by the SMS Forum to cover comments within text. If not, I suggest "French quoation marks" which look <<like this>>.

Hi Dusty,

It may be possible to put a bridge in front of the SMSC which uses XSL to convert the SMAP XML to normal SMPP, a stop gap measure initially ;-)

Regards,
Mike.
