Public preview: Java support for App Service on Linux
Published date: 07 March, 2018
We announced the general availability of Azure App Service on Linux and Web App for Containers in September 2017. Today, we’re adding more language runtime support for built-in images. You can now create a Linux web app by using Tomcat 8.5 or 9.0, with JRE 8 as a runtime stack.
For details on the Java preview release, take a look at our blog post.
