I am new to storage domain. I need help in understanding the storage domain. At the same time i need to understand the Vsphere APIs
for building my application.

Guys please please help me...........

Thanks a lot Vijayagce for your answer...

I am new to the storage domain and looking for some help...........
My current requirement is : i have to create a Vmfs datastore and Associate an already created LUN to this datastore and at the same time Map the datastore to one or More Hosts present in Daatcenter.
I have googled for it but i am not getting the exact answer for this. Whatever i have got (http://www.vmware.com/communities/content/developer/samplecode/java/CreateVmfsDatastore.html) is using com.vmware.apputils, which i think is not present in the the jar (vijava2120100715.jar) which i am using.
Please help me with the solution.
At the same time, it will be helpfull if someone could provide me some reference document for using APIs.
Thanks in advance
I think ur sample code from vSphere webservice SDK. If you want to work with vSphere webservice SDK please find the below link to download and u will get apputil inside the package then u can get some idea..
Also Apputil is nothing but collection of some methods which are in vSphere API.. so after getting some idea from apputil.java u can code ur own way without using apputil.java.
Thanks a lot Vijayagce for your quick replies........
Can you please provide the sample code for my requirement which is like:
Assuming i am using vijava2120100715.jar:
