Overview of Developing a JET Application Using a VM
If an application that you want to develop has a dependency on C or C++ modules or the application needs to be signed, then you must use the Juniper Extension Toolkit (JET) virtual machine (VM) for application development.
The JET VM is a 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 long-term support release. Application developers can use the JET IDE provided with the VM to develop applications. To set up the development environment, you must download the JET bundle from the Juniper Networks download site, and then, once the VM is up, install the JET toolchain, Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE), plug-ins, and other tools and libraries that are required for developing on-device or off-box applications. For more details on the installing the VM, see Setting Up the JET Virtual Machine.
