Spring Book – Chapter 20 – Spring Integration


Spring Integration provides support for interacting with Twitter. With the Twitter adapters, you can both receive and send Twitter messages.

Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the author’s profile page and delivered to the author’s subscribers who are known as followers.

Listing 22-68 below shows configuration of main Spring Integration namespace and twitter related namespace in the Spring configuration file (twitter-integration-context.xml).

For configuring twitter inbound and outbound channel adapter, we need to have TwitterTemplate bean configured as bean in the Spring configuration file as shown in Listing 22-69 below.
