Juniper Extension Toolkit


Release 18.3

September 2018

Revision 1

These release notes accompany the Juniper Extension Toolkit (JET). They describe the new and changed features, limitations, and known and resolved problems.

Applications developed using the Juniper Extension Toolkit (JET) are supported on the following platforms: ACX Series, PTX Series, QFX Series, MX80, MX104, MX240, MX480, MX960, MX2010, MX2020, vMX, vSRX, and SRX Series.

JET provides a common API framework that exposes API functionality made available by the internal Junos OS daemons. Each internal daemon exposes its own APIs. All of the APIs are accessible using the gRPC framework for remote procedure calls (RPCs).

JET supports the following:

  • Multiple languages for applications that run off-box

  • Python for applications that run on a device running Junos OS

  • Applications written in C to run on devices that do not use the JET APIs

  • An event notification method that enables the applications to respond to selected system events
