Azure Cosmos DB—Direct connectivity support for Java Async SDK is now in preview
Updated: June 12, 2019
The Azure Cosmos DB Async Java SDK now supports direct mode connectivity, available in version 2.4 and higher. When direct mode connectivity is enabled, applications can send requests directly to the Azure Cosmos DB backend nodes, rather than gateway nodes, resulting in fewer network hops and improved performance for users.
