New Feature: Virtual input device framework Date: Fri, 21 Feb 2014 09:58:43 +0530  |  Posted by: Anup Patel

Recently, we have added virtual input device framework which will be available from Xvisor v0.2.4 onwards.

This new framework enables us to create virtual keyboard/mouse instances for Guest instances. In future, this framework will also provide mechanism to create virtual multi-touch instance for Guest instances.

The main purpose of virtual input device framework is to have generic layer which is enables daemons, libraries, commands, and other parts of Xvisor to inject virtual input events (i.e. virtual key press/release, virtual mouse movements, etc.).

To see virtual input device framework in-action, use "e;vinput"e; or "e;vscreen"e; commands for injecting virtual input events from management terminal.
