Some companies have been working with proprietary implementations of KMIP in different programming languages for a while, but until now, no open source solution existed. Hence, the creation of KMIP4J, an open source implementation of KMIP in Java™ code now available onwww.sourceforge.net. In this interview, one of the co-creators of KMIP4J, Michael Guster, introduces this project. Find out more about KMIP4J at thisdeveloperWorks article.
