Getting started with Twitter

This page contains information to help you get started with Twitter in Semarchy xDI.

The Twitter operations can be entirely reversed in Metadata and then used in Mappings and Processes to design and adapt the business rules to meet the user’s requirements.

The first step is to create a new Twitter Metadata:

  1. Create a Twitter Metadata, select a name for it.

  2. A wizard opens to select the Twitter operations to reverse.

You can refer to Connect to your data page to learn the basics about Metadata creation and configuration.
Twitter Metadata is based on HTTP REST Metadata, so it is using an HTTP REST Module.

You can open again the wizard at anytime to reverse other operations. We suggest to reverse only the operations you need to use, to avoid being overloaded with a bunch of operations you will not use. To open again the reverse wizard, click on the root node of the Metadata, and choose Actions > Launch Twitter wizard.

Below, an overview of a Twitter Metadata with some operations reversed.

Create your first mappings

Twitter Component is based on HTTP REST Component.

You can use Twitter operations in Mapping, invoke them and retrieve the responses.

Sample project

The Twitter component is distributed with sample projects that contain various examples and files. Use these projects to better understand how the component works, and to get a head start on implementing it in your projects.

Refer to Install components in Semarchy xDI Designer to learn about importing sample projects.
