Java and Perl join the vSphere Automation SDKs in Github

By Alan Renouf, Sr. Product Line Manager, VMware


On March 9th 2017 VMware this post here announced the open sourcing of some of VMware’s key Software Development Kits (SDKs) allowing partners, automation engineers, DevOps teams and system admins a wealth of tooling to access the new vSphere Automation REST APIs.

These SDKs were for Python and REST, the community feedback and commitment received was fantastic and we want to thank anyone who committed changes and worked with us on the SDKs.

So Whats New?

Today I am pleased to let you know that we at VMware are adding further to our commitment to Open Source and better developer collaboration have added two additional new GitHub repositories to allow even more collaboration and ease of access to the additional languages of Java and Perl.  If you access the main page here you will now see additional buttons for these languages and an overview of the existing SDKs.

The Github repositories can be accessed directly here:

As a reminder, these SDK’s currently cover the following features with more to be added in the future:

  • VM Basic Lifecycle
  • vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA) Management APIs
  • vCenter Tagging (Available since vSphere 6.0)
  • vSphere Content Library (Available since vSphere 6.0)

Does this help you? Let us know in the comments!

We look forward to working with you and our Open Source SDKs!
