The example is demonstrating how to poll a constant feed of twitter searches and publish results in real time using web socket to a web page.
This example is already configured using a testing purpose twitter account named ‘cameltweet’. And therefore the example is ready to run out of the box.
This account is only for testing purpose, and should not be used in your custom applications. For that you need to setup and use your own twitter account.
You will need to install this example first to your local maven repository with: mvn install
This example requires running in Apache Karaf / ServiceMix
To install Apache Camel in Karaf you type in the shell (as an example here we make use of Camel version 2.12.0):
feature:repo-add camel 2.12.0
First you need to install the following features in Karaf/ServiceMix with:
feature:install camel-blueprint feature:install camel-twitter feature:install camel-websocket
Then you can install the Camel example:
install -s mvn:org.apache.camel/camel-example-twitter-websocket-blueprint/2.12.0
Then open a browser to see live twitter updates in the web page
http://localhost:9090 To stop the example run from Karaf/ServiceMix shell: stop
eg if the bundle id is 99 then type: stop 99
We have described this in more details at the Camel twitter documentation: http://camel.apache.org/twitter
This example is documented at http://camel.apache.org/twitter-websocket-blueprint-example.html
There is a regular (non OSGi Blueprint) example as well documented at: http://camel.apache.org/twitter-websocket-example.html
