Learn how to develop a JSP script that read messages from XML file of SMS FoxBox


As explained in the tutorial "How to perform custom actions on

incoming or outgoing SMS messages" the XML transformation script is an action activated by uncommenting the following lines from Event Handler.

#Save messages in XML format
#if [ "$1" = "RECEIVED" ]; then
#/etc/sms/scripts/sms2xml $1 $2 $3

To activate de-activate the module you have always to remember to remove/add the # sharp character.
