Public preview: Java support for App Service on Linux
Updated: March 07, 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.
