Announcing vijavaNG 6.0 with vSphere 6.0 Support

Even before VMware announced the GA of vSphere 6.0, I’ve started to work on the vijavaNG making sure that vijavaNG will keep up with the latest release of vSphere. Although it may take a bit time for customers and partners to move onto this new release, we want early adopters to have the choice to use the best Java APIs for managing vSphere.

After intensive development and testing, I am happy to announce the GA of vijavaNG 6.0. I’d like to thank our beta customers who had tried out the new version and validated the product quality for mission critical enterprise applications.

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.

The major change in vijavaNG 6.0 is the vSphere 6.0 support. As a major release of vSphere, VMware had added quite a few new features. From APIs perspective, these features led to new managed objects, new methods to existing managed objects, and new parameters to existing methods. The last change essentially breaks the existing application. The vijavaNG 6.0 has added extra layer to keep the compatibility, which means the existing applications will continue to work (both compile and run time) without any change. I will discuss more details in later blog posts.

On top of the open source version vijava, the commercial vijavaNG has many new features including a new streaming engine with faster performance and less than half memory consumption, new security enhancements, logging, guest APIs, complete Java doc, etc. For more details, please feel free to check out the product page at company site:

For the customers and OEM partners to sign up in this month, we will have some discounts. Please feel free to send an email to (note: it’s .net) for more details on the sales.

    Hi Shubham, I think the open source version is probably good enough for your academic projects. Please let me know otherwise.
