Hi Ignacio

The first question to be answered is whether you are looking to  
program against the SoftLayer API *directly*, or whether you would  
like to use jclouds' ComputeService abstraction, which would allow you  
to potentially move to a different provider without changing your  
code. See [1] for some background.

If you decide to program against the abstraction, the simple  
compute-basics example [2] is a good place to start - you'll only need  
the identity and credential for your SoftLayer account.

If you're looking to program directly against the SoftLayer API, the  
ec2-createlamp example demonstrates how to get at the underlying API,  
and the Javadocs for the SoftLayer API itself [4] will tell you which  
calls are available.

Good luck!
