VMware Server 2 – Datacenter’s Name

May 11th, 2010 jmguilla No comments

Today I played with jASMINe VMM to compare its features against ProActive VMM. During VMM-Agent configuration, you have to set datacenter’s name and virtual machine’s folder parth. Regarding Virtual Infrastructure SDK Documentation, it seems that only datacenter is defined at the host level ( for an ESX host or a VMware Server 2 for instance ), but I didn’t find anythind about their name in VMware Server 2 doc… Thus, I just modified ProActive VMM a bit to print default datacenter and vm folder’s name:

Datacenter: ha-datacenter

VM-Folder: vm

How to dynamically load an implementation using Java 5?

You cannot use Java 6? One of the coolest features brought by this last release is the capability of loading an implementation just using:


And you were looking for that… I know how boring it is!! It is not public in the API but I found it there. That means that to use ServiceLoader with Java 5 is straight forward:

   CharEncoder getEncoder(String encodingName) { 
       Iterator ps = Service.providers(MyInterface.class); 
       while (ps.hasNext()) { 
           MyInterface myInterface = (MyInterface); 
           MyImpl myImpl = MyInterface.getImpl(implName); 
           if (myImpl != null) 
               return myImpl; 
       return null; 

That’s it
