Public preview: Java support for App Service on Linux

Wednesday, March 7, 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, check out our blog post.
