Send a tweet over webapp


Hey there,

I have a problem figuring out how I can send a tweet from my webapp after the oauth.

My callback is working and starts the controller:

@RequestMapping(value = “about/callback”, method = { RequestMethod.GET, RequestMethod.POST })
public ModelAndView twitterTest(
ModelMap model,
Locale locale,
@ModelAttribute(AbstractNavigationController.NAVIGATION) Navigation navigation,
HttpServletRequest request) {

	TwitterUtils twitter = new TwitterUtils(myAccessToken);
	String verifier = request.getParameter("oauth_verifier");
	twitter4j.User user = twitter.verify(verifier);

	ModelAndView twitModel = new ModelAndView("twittertest");
	twitModel.addObject("verified_user", user.getName());
            twitModel.addObject("user_id", user.getId());
	return twitModel;

That’s working perfectly and after the return the “twittertest.jsp” is displayed.
The URL is then something like this: “

On my twittertest.jsp I now have a inputfield and a submit-button:

     <label for="tweet">Tweet here:</label>
<input id="tweet" name="tweet" type="text" />
    <input type="submit" class="button" value="Tweet" />

How can I now “transfer” the text from the input field and my “user_id” from the twitModel to a controller to send a tweet?

Thanks in advance.


I googled again, but sadly can’t find any solution for it.
So I hope this bump will get me some help. :slight_smile:
