Java on Azure
Get started developing Java applications in the cloud with Java development tools and frameworks of your choice
Why Java on Azure?
Develop using tools you love
Build, debug, and deploy Java applications on Azure using your favorite IDEs like Eclipse, IntelliJ, and Visual Studio Code for Java. Use build and automation tools like Maven, Gradle, and Jenkins for your CI/CD needs.
Ship faster with fully managed services
Unload infrastructure hardware and software management to Azure with Azure App Service, Azure Spring Cloud, Azure Kubernetes Service, and fully managed databases so you can focus on writing code.
Easy to grow
Quickly add services and capabilities like MySQL and PostgreSQL databases, performance monitoring, and secrets management as your needs expand. Easily infuse AI into your apps with Azure Cognitive APIs.
Azure plugins for Eclipse and IntelliJ
Build Java applications and deploy them to the cloud directly from your favorite IDE. Java development toolkits for Eclipse and IntelliJ provide templates and functionality that you can use to easily create, develop, test, and deploy Azure applications.Learn about tools and IDEs
Azure Spring Cloud
Use Azure Spring Cloud to bring modern microservice patterns to Spring Boot apps, eliminating boilerplate code to quickly develop robust Java apps. Easily deploy, operate, and scale your apps in a fully managed environment.Read the quickstart guides
Java EE on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)
Run Oracle WebLogic Server on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) with solutions validated by Microsoft and Oracle. Easily create production-ready deployments with instructions, samples, and best practices.Read the documentation
Build and deploy Java apps in the cloud using a range of familiar services
Migrate your Java applications running on Tomcat to Azure with the App Service Migration Assistant.
Optimize your compute with containers. Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) and Azure Red Hat OpenShift offer fully managed, enterprise-grade services to run your Java-based apps in the cloud.
Managed PostgreSQL, MySQL, and SQL
Set up your favorite relational database in the cloud using reliable, scalable, and fully managed services for PostgreSQL, MySQL, and SQL Server.
AI and cognitive services
Use AI and cognitive APIs to build intelligent apps. Azure Cognitive Services brings AI within reach of every developer—without requiring machine-learning expertise.
Security and identity services
Add authentication to your app with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) and store cryptographic keys and other secrets in Azure Key Vault.
Collect, analyze, and act on telemetry data from your Azure and on-premises environments with Azure Monitor to maximize the performance and availability of your applications.
