Automatically Generate Your Java Code With Onyx?

During last Friday VMware beer bash, I bumped into Carter Shanklin. He told me he’s ready show off how his Onyx project can help Java developers using VI Java API at Partner Exchange next week in Las Vegas. If you will be there, be sure to attend his session TEXIBP1007 – also known as “Getting Stoned with ‘Project Onyx’” on Thursday at 11:30.

If you haven’t seen it, Onyx is a tool that converts vSphere Client UI clicks into executable code, which means that instead of writing your code the hard way you just use a tool you know and love to automatically generate your code. If you can’t wait to get started you can download Onyx or visit our community.

Lost VMs or Containers? Too Many Consoles? Too Slow GUI? Time to learn how to "Google" and manage your VMware and clouds in a fast and secure HTML5 App.

Top 3 reasons to attend:

  1. Learn how Onyx can help you even if you’re a Java/C# developer and not a PowerCLI user.
  2. Using Onyx means no more digging around in the vSphere API docs to figure out what properties you need.
  3. Learn how Onyx can even help you debug your own applications!

I will cover more details on how Oynx can help with your vSphere applications later.

    Thanks Steve, but my PayPal account was cancelled so I’ll have to write you a check instead.

    No problem Carter. I will post more about your presentation, maybe a video if available.
    Please hold on the check for the moment. You know my website name starts with “double”. Are you ready to pay “double?”
