1. Usage

The class files can be copied directly into your project, then reference the json-simple-1.1.1.jar library. and then use as follows:

To initialize:

ClickatellHttp click = new ClickatellHttp(USERNAME, APIID, PASSWORD); 
ClickatellRest clickRest = new ClickatellRest(API_KEY);

To send one message:

ClickatellHttp.Message response = click.sendMessage("27821234567", "Hello, this is a test message!");
ClickatellRest.Message response = clickRest.sendMessage("27821234567", "Hello, this is a test message!"); 

To get the status of a message:

int status = click.getMessageStatus("b305c3445e37626ffabb21edc9320e1e"); 

To get the cost of a message:

ClickatellHttp.Message reply = click.getMessageCharge("b305c3445e37626ffabb21edc9320e1e"); 
System.out.println("Charge: " + reply.charge); 
System.out.println("Status: " + reply.status); 

To get the cost and status of message in REST:

ClickatellRest.Message msg = clickRest.getMessageStatus(response.message_id); 
System.out.println("ID:" + msg.message_id); 
System.out.println("Status:" + msg.status); 
System.out.println("Status Description:" + msg.statusString); 
System.out.println("Charge:" + msg.charge); 

To do a coverage check:

double reply = click.getCoverage("27820909090");
