Tweeting tiny URLs using Java

A little while back I mentioned using Twitter API‘s especially Twitter4J for to send alerts.  Well it was not long before I wanted to send URLs that pointed to more extensive log entries regarding the status alerts.  So here are a couple of articles that provide all you’ll need.

First an API table (and sample C# code) from  Sharing my thoughts …

How to programmatically create your tiny URL? « Sharing my thoughts…

Each provides having different kind formats to specify actual URL and get the converted URL back. Most of the sites will be listed this as their API. Here I listed 3 of the most famous provider’s format.

Is.gd http://is.gd/api.php?longurl={your_url}
Bit.ly http://bit.ly/api?url={your_url}
Tinyurl http://tinyurl.com/api-create.php?url={your_url}

Second, a sample Java implementation from It’s Only Software

» [Tutorial] Accessing the TinyURL “API” from Java – It’s Only Software

Recently, I poked around and wrote up a simple Java method to, given a URL (TinyURL supports only GET requests), generate a TinyURL from it in Java. This is really the only “API” supported by the TinyURL service, but it’s a handy one!

    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
