Splunk Announces SDKs for Java and Python

Dec 21, 2012

New SDKs aim to integrate Splunk with big data applications.

Splunk Inc. releases new software development kits (SDKs) for Java and Python. Splunk previously released the SDK for JavaScript for Splunk Enterprise 5, and the Splunk SDK for PHP is in public preview.

According to the company, the SDKs for Java, Javascript, PHP, and Python are built on a fully documented and supported REST API and they include documentation, code samples, resources, and tools to help developers build on the Splunk platform. The SDKs allow developers to integrate Splunk data with other applications and create applications to index, search, visualize, and analyze data. They also allow developers to build enterprise-grade applications rapidly with standard programming languages and tools.

"We want to empower developers to build big data applications on the Splunk platform and to understand that you don't need large-scale development efforts to get big value. That's a key driver behind the development of these SDKs, helping developers quickly get started with Splunk software, leveraging their existing language skills and driving rapid time to value," said Paul Sanford, general manager of developer platform, Splunk. 

You can download the Splunk SDK for Java, the Splunk SDK for Python, and the Splunk SDK for JavaScript immediately. To learn more, please visit http://www.splunk.com/company.
