Comments:

Where do we go to find an API for working with the VM Server for SPARC? I have been searching for an API to create, read, update, and delete Logical Domains to no avail.

David, you can use the XML interface with Logical Domains Manager. It's the programmatic interface ISVs are using. Please refer to the documentation: http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/821-1485/usingxmlinterfacewithldomsmgr and feel free to let us know if you have any questions.
