HANA & Twitter integration using Java
For last couple of days I was trying to integrate social media with HANA,there are several ways to do the same,We can use Business Object Data Services , ABAP,Java, Python etc…
As I am starter in BODS I have looked at other options ,Java was easy for me as I am not core ABAP er , ABAPer’s can try that using TWIBAP library for Twitter, ,ABAP integration.
I took Java path, as I had brush with java during my days,just rewinded the concepts, believe me you don’t need to be strong in Java ,you just need conceptual idea and there on you can got lot of help on java, as it is wide spread.Below are the steps I followed.
1. Download the Twitter4j library from below link.
2.Register an Application at Twitter Developers.
3.Create your oAuth Tokens.
4.Download Examples from below
in the below path you can find different examples you can use Stream API for better rate limits
for some things first you need to authenticate your App created in step2 using oAuth.
in th streaming API .java files you need to add your code to send tweets to HANA directly using JDBC connection.I used userStream.java to get the followers tweets into HANA using JDBC
There you are you can get your tweets in HANA.
