In order to create a framework i need to use the openstack APIs in java or python programming. Please give details about using the APIs of virtual machines and all.

You could read the API quick start guide.

Basically you must perform a two step process:

  • authenticate against Keystone (Openstack Identity Service)
  • call Openstack APIs

Here is some python code to authenticate and add a new project/tenant. Run this python code after you install the command line utils and python.

from keystoneclient.v2_0 import client
keystone = client.Client(username="user_name", password="your_passwd", tenant_name="Demo", auth_url="http://horizon_url:5000/v2.0")
tenant = keystone.tenants.create(tenant_name="test-1", description="My new tenant! via API and Python", enabled=True)
