This is a very old and outdated library, if you attempt to use it against the current version of Gnip it will not work. I'm leaving this code up on github only as a reference.
Welcome to Gnip's Java convenience library!
This library produces a single JAR file called gnip-client-.jar that can be used to conveniently access Gnip services. The implementation depends on Java 1.6 features; Java 1.5 or earlier environments are not supported.
Building this library requires maven2. Maven can be downloaded from http://maven.apache.org/.
To build the library, run: mvn compile
To clean the library, run: mvn clean
To package the library into its JAR, run: mvn package
To test the library, create the file:
which holds the username, password, and host properties used to connect to Gnip. This file should be of the format:
the number of seconds to wait between each test's setup / teardown
Note, the JUnit tests publish activities to a Publisher. You can only own publish activities to a Publisher when you own it, so create a Publisher and provide its name above in the "gnip.publisher" property.
To test the library, run: mvn test
