Following the vSphere 4.1 release, I am pleased to announce the release of the vSphere(VI) Java API 2.1 beta that fully supports the vSphere 4.1. The 2.1 beta has been ready for limited access for months by VMware internal teams, and partners/customers who participated vSphere 4.1 beta program.
The 2.1 beta works with VMware Infrastructure 3.0, 3.5, vSphere 4, and 4.1. It automatically detects the versions of 4 and 4.1, so you don’t need to change the way you work with the API. Besides the support of 4.1, it also includes several bug fixes since 2.0 update 1 released last December. For more info on what’s new in vSphere API 4.1, check out this blog.
