Microsoft has announced that Azure Cloud has a couple of new libraries to support programs written in Java. Different functions in the platform can now be called with Java.

The tech company has announced the update in a blog post. In it, Weidong Xu, senior software engineer at Microsoft, explains what the new features are, along with some examples.


The libraries work with either a fluent or a chained programming methodology, which makes it easy to call several components of Azure in one go.

For example, when a developer creates a virtual machine, he can chain the storage account and service plan as well. Also, a developer can easily create and delete Managed Disk Instances in batches.

Other features

Other new features include support for the Microsoft Authentication Library, in addition to support for CDN, Compute, Containers, DNS, SQL and Network and Traffic Management.
