This blog gives a brief overview of the HTML Client SDK version and plug-ins compatibility. It will answer a common question among plug-in developers: “Which SDK version should I use?”
There are three major variables in the compatibility matrix you need to consider:
- vCenter Server version
- vSphere HTML Client version
- vSphere HTML Client SDK version
|SDK Version used to create the HTML plug-in||vSphere Web Client 5.5 U1||vSphere Web Client 6.0||vSphere Web Client 6.5
vSphere Client 6.5
Note: To ensure plug-in compatibility you must follow the instructions for upgrading your plug-in.
Unless you need to support the vSphere Web Client 5.5 U1, we recommend that you use the latest vSphere HTML Client SDK 6.5. It will ensure that your plug-in is compatible with Flex-based vSphere Web Client 6.0, Flex-based vSphere Web Client 6.5 and vSphere Client 6.5, and you can take advantage of all latest APIs, tools and improvements. The differences between vSphere Web Client SDK 6.0 and 6.5 are documented in the vSphere Web Client SDK 6.5 release notes.
