The JSA application framework comes with its own software development kit (SDK).

Use the JSA Application Framework software development kit (SDK) to do the following application development tasks:

You Download the SDK ( and extract the JSA Application Framework SDK archive (.zip file) from DeveloperWorks.

  • Create a development workspace--The JSA Application Framework SDK installs a development workspace that has a sample application that you use as a template to build your own extension.

  • Run your app locally for test purposes--You don't need to upload your extension code to a live JSA console instance to test your app. The JSA application framework SDK includes a virtual development environment that you can use to run your application locally.

    If your app uses JSA API endpoints, you can configure the virtual environment to connect to the API on the JSA Console instance and test locally. You do not need to upload to JSA console.

  • Package your app--The JSA Application Framework SDK includes a packaging utility that you use to create an archive (.zip file) that contains your extension files.

  • Deploy your app to JSA console--The JSA Application Framework SDK includes a deployment utility that you can use to upload your packaged app directly to a live JSA console instance.
