Update Java SDK 3.x to Java SDK 4.x by 31 August 2024
Published date: August 17, 2021
Because Azure Cosmos DB Java SDK v4 has up to 20% enhanced throughput, TCP-based direct mode, bug fixes, and provide support for the latest backend features, we’ll retire 3.x version of the Azure Cosmos DB Java SDK for SQL API on 31 August 2024. We recommend you make the switch early to gain the enhanced benefits of Azure Cosmos DB Java SDK 4.x. Start using SDK 4.x for net-new subscriptions/accounts.
In addition to current features you already use, here’s a quick comparison between Azure Cosmos DB Java SDK 3.x and Azure Cosmos DB Java SDK 4.x:
Java SDK 3.x
Java SDK 4.x
After 31 August 2024, if you prefer not to upgrade, requests sent from 3.x SDK will continue to be served by the Azure Cosmos DB service. No further updates will be made for 3.x version of the Azure Cosmos DB Java SDK for SQL API.
Please follow the steps to migrate your application to use the Azure Cosmos DB Java SDK version 4.
