Create an Application

In this code snippet you will see how to create an Application.

Example

You will need to ensure that the following replaceable values are set in the example code using any convenient method:

Key Description
VONAGE_API_KEY Your Vonage API key (see it on your dashboard).
VONAGE_API_SECRET Your Vonage API secret (also available on your dashboard).

Write the code

Add the following to create-application.sh:

curl -X "POST" "https://api.nexmo.com/v2/applications" \
     -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
     -u "$VONAGE_API_KEY:$VONAGE_API_SECRET" \
     -d $'{

Add the following to the main method of the CreateApplication class:

ApplicationClient applicationClient = client.getApplicationClient();

Capability messages = Messages.builder()
        .addWebhook(Webhook.Type.INBOUND,
                new Webhook("https://example.com/webhooks/inbound", HttpMethod.POST))
        .addWebhook(Webhook.Type.STATUS,
                new Webhook("https://example.com/webhooks/status", HttpMethod.POST))

Run your code

We can use the application plugin for Gradle to simplify the running of our application. Update your build.gradle with the following:

  apply plugin: 'application'
  mainClassName = project.hasProperty('main') ? project.getProperty('main') : ''

Run the following gradle command to execute your application, replacing com.vonage.quickstart.application with the package containing CreateApplication:

gradle run -Pmain=com.vonage.quickstart.application.CreateApplication
