Executive Summary

For my final project I would like to develop and compile Java code on the BeagleBoard to create an application for Twitter that allows a user to sign in from the Beagle and post tweets using the Java Twitter API called Twitter4J.

Currently I have a graphical interface built using the Java Swing library.

I haven't been able to communicate with the twitter servers to pull down a current status or to post a new one.

Installation Instructions

Install the Java Development Kit on the beagle opkg install openjdk-6-jdk

User Instructions

I compile and run my code on the beagle using the Open JDK6 and using the commands assuming the file has my main method in it:

Compiling .java files in directory javac <filename>.java

Or compiling all .java files at once javac *.java

Running the application java Main


Theory of Operation

Give a high level overview of the structure of your software. Are you using GStreamer? Show a diagram of the pipeline. Are you running multiple tasks? Show what they do and how they interact.

Work Breakdown

List the major tasks in your project and who did what.

Also list here what doesn't work yet and when you think it will be finished and who is finishing it.


Give some concluding thoughts about the project. Suggest some future additions that could make it even more interesting.
