Java on Azure
Develop enterprise Java applications in the cloud with your favorite tools and frameworks
Why Java on Azure?
Develop using tools and frameworks you love
Build, debug and deploy Java applications on Azure using your favorite IDEs, including Eclipse, IntelliJ and Visual Studio Code for Java. Use build and automation tools like Maven, Gradle and Jenkins for your continuous integration and continuous delivery needs.
Ship faster with fully managed services
Focus on building business applications, instead of managing your infrastructure. Take advantage of Azure App Service, Azure Spring Cloud, Azure Container Service (AKS) and Azure Red Hat OpenShift for hardware and software infrastructure management.
Extend your Java applications
Quickly add services and capabilities, including managed MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQL databases, performance monitoring and secrets management. Connect your applications with integration services like Azure Service Bus with Java Message Service (JMS) support and Azure API Management.
Take advantage of the Microsoft partner ecosystem
Get best-in-class solutions to bring your existing Java workloads to Azure and extend the functionality of your applications. Access a growing portfolio of Java-focused solutions, from unique managed hosting options with joint development and support to Azure Marketplace images for popular Linux distributions.
Azure Spring Cloud
Easily deploy, operate and scale your Spring Boot apps in a fully managed environment with Azure Spring Cloud. Get even more functionality with Azure Spring Cloud Enterprise (preview), which adds fully managed VMware Tanzu components, advanced configurability and Spring Runtime support.
Java EE on Azure App Service
Deploy your enterprise Java apps on a fully managed service with Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) on Azure App Service. Get the fully managed experience of App Service with joint support from Microsoft and Red Hat.
Java EE on Azure Container Service (AKS)
Run Java EE applications with Oracle WebLogic Server on AKS with solutions validated by Microsoft and Oracle. Easily create production-ready deployments with instructions, samples and best practices.
Build and deploy Java apps in the cloud using familiar services
Migrate your Java applications running on Tomcat to Azure with the App Service migration assistant.
Optimise your compute with containers. Get started with automated tooling that containerises your Java web apps and moves them to Azure Container Service (AKS).
Set up your favourite relational database in the cloud using reliable, scalable and fully managed services for PostgreSQL, MySQL and SQL Server.
Use AI and cognitive APIs to build intelligent apps. Azure Cognitive Services brings AI within reach of every developer—without requiring machine-learning expertise.
Add authentication to your app with Azure AD and store cryptographic keys and other secrets in Azure Key Vault.
Collect, analyse and act on telemetry data from your Azure and on-premises environments with Azure Monitor to maximise the performance and availability of your applications.
