The VMware vSphere Web Client SDK 6.0 provides libraries, sample plug-ins, documentation and various SDK tools to help you develop and build user interface extensions to the vSphere Web Client. You can use the vSphere Web Client to connect to vCenter Server instances by using a Web browser, so that you can manage your vSphere infrastructure.
