In the previous chapter, we built upon the ideas presented so far, and explored how to integrate SaaS solutions and how you can test your integration without impacting a live system. We continue this road and look at how connecting social applications differ. As social capabilities become ever more important, we explore how to connect and authenticate against such services.
To demonstrate the different social interaction we are going to use Twitter and Google. ICS provides out-of-the-box cloud adapters for connecting to these services. While one adapter provides all Twitter services there is one adapter per supported Google service, for example, Mail, Calendar, and Tasks.
