Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Hi, I made an upgrade from version 3.2 to 4.1.4 of Virtualbox and want to use SDK. Found that java-ws API changed since version 3.2. I haven't found IWebsessionManager in version 4.1.4. Is this problem of out dated documentation, or there is some problem with api generating? Please can You update or fix it?

The java bindings are generated automatically from the IDL file. It appears that just a few interfaces are not included (I think 4 interfaces are missing) because the stylesheet is missing a few cases.

Doesn't sound plausible - how can a lot of people write Java apps then which talk to the webservice and do all kinds of fancy things? There have been significant changes in the bindings for "starting up", so that the same java code can be used to talk to the webservice or directly to the local API through COM/XPCOM. All documented in detail in chapter 10 of the SDK manual, "Using Java API".

This bindings change happened with version 4.0 IIRC, so I think you incorrectly assume that the API won't ever change, which isn't guaranteed.
