The VMware® vFabric Application Director API Programming guide provides information about Representational State Transfer (REST) APIs to software developers who are interested in creating RESTful clients.

This guide describes how to use REST APIs to automate an application deployment, update a deployed application, tear down a deployed application, and delete applications in vFabric Application Director. In addition, you can use clients of the REST APIs to register for Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) notifications when vFabric Application Director operations occur.

This information is intended for software developers who are building hybrid cloud services. Developers must be familiar with technologies such as JSON, HTTPS, and AMQP.
