Re: [Libvir] a vmware driver

Hash: SHA1

Cool. I've been looking at the website and source trying to get a handle on the architecture and how to fit in the VI SDK. I would like to discuss the possibility of adding a third architecture.

The source for ivi was just committed and is viewable at http://www.lostcreations.com/code/browser/trunk/utilities/com.lostcreations.ivi . Bear in mind that this is the first commit. It just allows you to connect and list the contents of VMware and Xen servers. As soon as I get libvirt compiled and working on my Mac I will replace the XenApi java bindings with the libvirt java bindings.

Does anyone know if there is work being done on a VMware driver? If not, I could write one. I'm about to release an application via SearchServerVirtualization called ivi (Java Virtual Interface) that uses the VI SDK and the XenApi (cannot get libvirt to work on my dev platform - OS X) to enable management of both VMware VI3 boxes as well as Xen boxes. I would love to move away from the XenApi to libvirt, and even more so to extend libvirt to support the VI SDK.

We've been looking for someone to support VMWare for a long time, so yes this would be very welcome. To my knowledge no one is doing it at the moment.
