Java Fax – Cancel a Pending Fax

This sample allows you to cancel a Java fax that was previously submitted to the InterFAX Web service. This can be done using the CancelFax method. CancelFax only affects faxes waiting to be sent (with the status codes: -1 Preprocessing, -2 Ready, or -3 Pending Retry), and not faxes that actively-transmitted Java faxes.

The following Java fax snippet cancels a fax and checks if the cancellation succeeded.

The CancelFax code sample is also available as part of the ZIP file above (see the green ‘Download’ box), under the path interfaxJavaSamples > src > CancelPendingFax.

    static String PASSWORD = "";      // Enter your Interfax password here
    static int TRANSACTION_ID = 999999999;   // Replace with the transaction ID of the fax to be canceled
    /******** End settings ********/
