Using vSphere Java API in Jython and Other JVM languages

As a by-product, the vSphere Java API makes Jython programming a lot easier. The following is a very simple sample written in Jython to print out the name of the first virtual machine in inventory.

    from java.net import *
    from com.vmware.vim25.mo import *

    si= ServiceInstance(URL(“https://sjin-dev1/sdk”),\
    “root”, “password”, True)
    rootFolder = si.getRootFolder()
    vms = InventoryNavigator(rootFolder) \
    print “Hello ” + vms[0].getName()

As you can see, it really brings in the benefit of VI Java API into Python community at almost no extra cost.
