Since last stable vSphere 5.5 release of VI JAVA open source project , for more than 15+ months there was not any update on VI java, no any questions on the community were getting answered. There was lot of uncertainty among VI JAVA users on the future of the VI JAVA, discussions were picking up among VI JAVA on how to mitigate the impact if VI JAVA becomes dead and Michael Rice came to the rescue and puts the end to this speculation. He forked the VI JAVA project into YAVI JAVA (Yet Another VI JAVA) in order to give new life to this project which is for sure asset to many VMware users. I really appreciate the great proactive work done by Michael, YAVI JAVA is result of Machael’s dedication & passion for contributing to open source community. I am sure so many VI JAVA users have reason to celebrate this. I would like to thank other contributors as well. At the same time we just can not forget awesome work done by Steve Jin by leading VI JAVA project for several past releases. YAVI JAVA now available on GIT HUB and community contribution is getting increased. I would recommend all of you to spread the word about this project, start contributing, using and help in making this project a great success. Without community contribution, no open source project can become great. Along with supporting VMware vSphere 6.0, there are several new features added to YAVI JAVA, great thing about this project is: your old projects those developed using VI JAVA will work just fine. how cool it is!
Below are some of important hyperlinks about YAVI JAVA links, releases, tutorials, samples etc.
5. All the Samples : Do not worry as I specified all these samples will just work fine on YAVI JAVA as well. Please stay tuned for my blogs on sample wrt to new APIs introduced in vSphere 6.0
