Here’s a new post from our Developer Center Blog. Welcome, Steve, to the virtualization blogosphere! Check out the Developer Center and Developer Community if you haven’t for a while. A lot of solid resources for you. Link: VMware Communities: Developer Center Blog: Announcing client side Java APIs (experimental) and samples for VI SDK.

This is Steve from VMware CoDevelopment Engineering. I would like to
share with you the client side Java APIs and some samples I have
developed recently.

This API package:

  • Enables OO programming with a well defined managed object model
  • Reduces the need to use ManagedObjectReference
  • Hides the complexity of the PropertyCollector
  • Provides necessary utility classes to simplify VI SDK web interfaces
  • Keeps it small and simple
  • Leverages current VI SDK web services interface while keeping it intact
