IBM X-Force Exchange SDK API Documentation



The IBM X-Force Exchange SDK (XFE SDK) provides a powerful and extensible API for data processing, analysis and classification.
It comprises a set of component modules, each module specializing in a particular area of data analysis, or providing support functionality for other modules.
The following sections will guide you through finding out how the SDK works, what functionality it provides, and how this functionality can be incorporated into your own projects.
Previous versions of the SDK were named "IBM Deep Content Analysis SDK" (DCA) or "IBM Security Content Analysis SDK" (SCA). Though the terms DCA or SCA will be used infrequently in this documentation.


Chapter Requirements for using the XFE SDK shows what is required to run applications using the XFE SDK and how to setup required libraries and packages.
