Are you using the vSphere / VI Java API ? Please take our short survey


We are running a survey to better understand the needs of the greater community using the vSphere / VI Java API. I am referring to http://vijava.sourceforge.net

The survey takes less than 5 minutes and it would help us understand what you need from VMware.  Does your organization require formal support, indemnification, training or does the current model work for you ?

This survey will be confidential; we will not disclose your name or who you work for. We just want to understand how you are using the vSphere / VI Java API and what you need from VMware.

Thanks for your time and hope to see you at our Developer Days @ VMworld 2010

Coffee Talk Webinar – VIX API – Managing and Automating your Guest June 30th 9:00 AM PST

Title: VIX APIs – Managing and Automating Guest OS
We will show examples of how the VIX API can be used to develop tools
for managing guest environments in VMware products. Included will be a
demonstration of proof-of-concept tools that monitor processes and
transfer files to multiple guests simultaneously. We will also show a
Perl script that combines vSphere Web Services SDK and VIX SDK to
re-size a virtual disk and then the filesystem above it on the fly.

Wednesday June 30th – 9:00 AM PST

Speaker: Matt Lamantia R&D Manager

Enjoy the session

Developer Days @ VMworld 2010


We are happy to announce that we will be having our Developer Day @VMworld 2010. We are still working details and content but wanted to make sure this was on your radar. Event will run in parallel with VMworld at Moscone Center, there will be a moderate additional fee for event. Event can also be purchased as a standalone. More details to follow.

We plan on having two tracks, plus a track dedicated to the VMware Road Maps for TAP Members.

1st Track will be dedicated to all things vSphere APIs (Private Cloud APIs), we have some exciting developments in this area but that is all I am going to say.

2nd Track will be dedicated to our Application Developers, Cloud Developers. We plan to have great session from SpringSource, Gemfire, Zimbra, RabbitMQ and the vCloud APIs.

But enough text from me, hear what Ravi S. has to say. Hope to see you there.
