Twitter streaming API on Appengine


Can I use twitter streaming API on Appengine? Is there a library that I can use for it?


I don’t think it is possible. App Engine’s urlfetch package doesn’t support long-lived HTTP connections and as far as I know it’s not possible to open raw sockets on that platform.


I am using Twitter4j SNAPSHOT library on GAE java. GAE is throwing error java.lang.IllegalAccessException: Class can not access a member of class twitter4j.conf.PropertyConfigurationFactory with modifiers ""
JDk Version is 1.7 update 51.
