Quick Start with Azure Storage SDK V10 for Java

How to run this project


If you don't have an Azure subscription, create a free account before you begin.

Create a storage account using the Azure portal

First, create a new general-purpose storage account to use for this tutorial.

  • Go to the Azure portal and log in using your Azure account.
  • On the Hub menu, select New > Storage > Storage account - blob, file, table, queue.
  • Enter a name for your storage account. The name must be between 3 and 24 characters in length and may contain numbers and lowercase letters only. It must also be unique.
  • Set Deployment model to Resource manager.
  • Set Account kind to General purpose.
  • Set Performance to Standard.
  • Set Replication to Locally Redundant storage (LRS).
  • Set Storage service encryption to Disabled.
  • Set Secure transfer required to Disabled.
  • Select your subscription.
  • For resource group, create a new one and give it a unique name.
  • Select the Location to use for your storage account.
  • Check Pin to dashboard and click Create to create your storage account.

After your storage account is created, it is pinned to the dashboard. Click on it to open it. Under SETTINGS, click Access keys. Select a key and copy the key1 to the clipboard, then paste it into Notepad for later use.

Set credentials in environment variables

Linux export AZURE_STORAGE_ACCOUNT="<youraccountname>" export AZURE_STORAGE_ACCESS_KEY="<youraccountkey>"

Windows setx AZURE_STORAGE_ACCOUNT "<youracountname>" setx AZURE_STORAGE_ACCESS_KEY "<youraccountkey>"

At this point, you can run this application using maven: mvn compile exec:java. It creates its own file to upload and download, and then cleans up after itself by deleting everything at the end.

mvn compile exec:java
