Feed data to the splunk index using REST API

Hello experts! I would like to configure my java application to write data directly to a splunk index, rather than write to application logs and then use the splunk agent to index/search the logs, for data visualization. The documentation describes modular inputs as one way to feed data into splunk without the use of application logs. But, is there a way I can directly write to splunk, through the application , without the use of logging? . Would appreciate any inputs!

Thanks much!

Re: Feed data to the splunk index using REST API

You could add data directly to an index using the Java SDK for example.

See "To add data directly to an index" at http://dev.splunk.com/view/java-sdk/SP-CAAAEJ2
One of the available method lets you send events over a writeable socket for example.

Thank you for the response @damien_chillet . The SDK api looks like a promising option. Exploring to see if we can use it!
