As of release 7.14.0, Beta and Developer Preview products are now exposed via
twilio-java artifact. Releases of the
alpha branch have been
If you were using the
alpha release line, you should be able to switch back
to the normal release line without issue.
If you were using the normal release line, you should now see several new product lines that were historically hidden from you due to their Beta or Developer Preview status. Such products are explicitly documented as Beta/Developer Preview both in the Twilio docs and console, as well as through in-line code documentation here in the library.
twilio-java uses Maven. At present the jars are available from a public maven repository.
Use the following dependency in your project to grab via Maven:
<dependency> <groupId>com.twilio.sdk</groupId> <artifactId>twilio</artifactId> <version>7.X.X</version> <scope>compile</scope> </dependency>
If you want to compile it yourself, here's how:
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:twilio/twilio-java $ cd twilio-java $ mvn install # Requires maven, download from http://maven.apache.org/download.html
Send a SMS
String accountSid = "ACXXXXXX"; // Your Account SID from www.twilio.com/user/account String authToken = "XXXXXXXX"; // Your Auth Token from www.twilio.com/user/account Twilio.init(accountSid, authToken); Message message = Message.creator( new PhoneNumber("+15558881234"), // To number new PhoneNumber("+15559994321"), // From number "Hello world!" // SMS body ).create(); System.out.println(message.getSid());
Make a call
String accountSid = "ACXXXXXX"; // Your Account SID from www.twilio.com/user/account String authToken = "XXXXXXXX"; // Your Auth Token from www.twilio.com/user/account Twilio.init(accountSid, authToken); Call call = Call.creator( new PhoneNumber("+15558881234"), // To number new PhoneNumber("+15559994321"), // From number // Read TwiML at this URL when a call connects (hold music) new URI("http://twimlets.com/holdmusic?Bucket=com.twilio.music.ambient") ).create(); System.out.println(call.getSid());
To control phone calls, your application needs to output TwiML. TwiML in twilio-java now use the builder pattern!
TwiML twiml = new VoiceResponse.Builder() .say(new Say.Builder("Hello World!").build()) .play(new Play.Builder("https://api.twilio.com/cowbell.mp3").loop(5).build()) .build();
That will output XML that looks like this:
<Response> <Say>Hello World!</Say> <Play loop="5">https://api.twilio.com/cowbell.mp3</Play> </Response>
The documentation for the Twilio API can be found here.
