Splunk's Java SDK contains library code and examples designed to enable developers to build applications using Splunk. With the Splunk SDK for Java, developers can write Java applications to programmatically interact with the Splunk engine. The SDK is built on top of the REST API, providing a wrapper over the REST API endpoints. So with fewer lines of code, you can write applications that search your data, run saved searches, and work with search jobs.
