Twilio API Integration and DevelopmentTwilio API Integration and Development
Cloud is renowned name in the world of web. It had always coped up with promise of making things simpler, easy and affordable by which it helps in reducing complexity and makes services accessible by a simple Twilio API Integration. The result, achieved was magical indeed and Twilio was generated. In the starting stage of 2008, Twilio was launched for providing the services that gives web developers an API to easily build web pages apps. with telephony features like voice recording, audio playback, and in latest SMS Services. According to its founder Twilio is a matter of flexibility and it is a all-in-one deal, just you need to do is to; write your code in Twilio's easy to use syntax called TwiML. Twilio hides all the complexity of telephony behind an API which is very simple by which many applications can be developed in lesser span of time. This code is then forwarded to Twilio's telephony services in the cloud that are hosted on AWS. Latest version of Twilio allows not only for SMS integration but it also facilitates for all kinds of robust voice communication, which includes text to speech, MP3 playing, Voice recording, Option Menuing and most unique Monference calling.

HoizonCore + Twilio = An Easy, Unique and Scalable way to create contextual telephony apps.
Some of basic Features of Twilio:
- Build a Twilio API simulator for use on development machines
- Twilio service mock interface
- Twilio Emulator
- Building IVR with Twilio
It would be very cool to have a way to run a Twilio simulator on my development machine that would accept REST calls and respond to TwiML from local host. It could use an on-screen phone keypad and the computer's audio system for playback / recording.
It could simulate a call in to an application by requesting the same URL as the Twilio service. It could then print the says etc on a simple phone like GUI. It would allow the same inputs as a phone (0-9 * #). It would process redirects, hangups, records (record locally and optionally serve the file using jetty or something) etc.
Twilio call flow emulator allows user interaction for dialogs and timeouts. It is designed to speed up development of your application without dialing a phone and saving telephony costs.
If you are unaware about development of IVR and are not having any experience regarding its development than developing an IVR can be a scary job. To simplify IVR development, Twilio came up with a solution that takes the complicated choices in technology away from the project.
Twilio API Process
What is TwiML?
TwiML provides mainly two types of services that mainly consist of TwiML Voice and TwiML SMS.
How Twilio Passes Data to Your Application:
Twilio makes HTTP requests to your application just like a regular web browser. By including parameters and values in its requests, Twilio sends data to your application that you can act upon before responding. You can configure the URLs and HTTP Methods Twilio uses to make its requests via your account portal or using the REST API.
TwiML Voice Requests:
When Twilio receives a call for one of your Twilio numbers it makes a synchronous HTTP request to the Voice URL configured for that number, and espects to receive TwiML in response. Twilio sends the following parameters with its request as POST parameters or URL query parameters, depending on which HTTP method you've configured.
