Yesterday I blogged about Ring Central and their APIs for sending SMS, making voice calls and much more. In that post I showed an example of how easy it is to send an SMS with Node.JS.

Create an instance of the client:

Then send the message:

And that's all it takes to send an SMS with Java and Ring Central!
