At the time of final year project in MCA we have done a challenging project on citrix xenserver. Initially we did research and learn about virtualization, xenserver and xen java API concepts later we decided to do a web based project and named as xenserver management on cloud computing. We developed a web console to interact with xenserve and performing various operations on it. In our project we did different modules like establishing connection with  xenserver, getting the xenserver version, vm creation, VM destroy  and virtual machine life cycle. Life cycle is nothing but VM start, stop and reboot.

It is difficult to explain all modules so I will cover most useful functionality how to connect xenserver using java and VM life cycle using java. Don’t be confuse VM is called as virtual machine and it a guest operating system. In below video demo we can watch complete practical part like how to create web project, adding xen API jars in project, configuring apache tomcat server etc.
