VMware wants to hear from you about the vSphere Java API

If you have read Easy vSphere Web Apps with Grails and the VI Java API or Easy VMware Development with VI Java API and Groovy then you know I’m a big fan of Steve Jin’s vSphere Java API.   And I recently received the following email …


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

So if you’re a developer using the vSphere Java API – or if you would like to use it but can’t for some reason (e.g. lack of official support) – then I would ask that you take the survey.  I’ve already taken the survey, and I can assure you it’s quick and painless.  Thanks for your help!
