Manage App Service, SQL Database, and more - Azure Management Libraries for Java

Gepost op 24 januari, 2017

Principal PM Architect, Java on Azure

One Java statement to create a Web App. One statement to create a SQL Server and another statement to create a SQL Database. One statement to create an Application Gateway, etc.

Beta 4 of the Azure Management Libraries for Java is now available. Beta 4 adds support for the following Azure services and features:

App Service (Web Apps)

SQL Database

Application Gateway

Traffic Manager



Redis Cache

Add the following to your Maven POM file to use Beta 4:


Last year, we announced previews of the new, simplified Azure management libraries for Java. Our goal is to improve the developer experience by providing a higher-level, object-oriented API, optimized for readability and writability. Thank you for trying the libraries and providing us with plenty of useful feedback.

Create a Web App

You can create a Web app instance by using a define() … create() method chain.

WebApp webApp = azure.webApps()

Create a SQL Database

You can create a SQL server instance by using another define() … create() method chain.

SqlServer sqlServer = azure.sqlServers().define(sqlServerName)
    .withNewFirewallRule("", "")

Then, you can create a SQL database instance by using another define() … create() method chain.

SqlDatabase database = sqlServer.databases().define("myNewDatabase")

Create an Application Gateway

You can create an application gateway instance by using another define() … create() method chain.

ApplicationGateway applicationGateway = azure.applicationGateways().define("myFirstAppGateway")
    // Request routing rule for HTTP from public 80 to public 8080

Sample code

You can find plenty of sample code that illustrates management scenarios in Azure Virtual Machines, Virtual Machine Scale Sets, Storage, Networking, Resource Manager, SQL Database, App Service (Web Apps), Key Vault, Redis, CDN and Batch.

Service Management Scenario
Virtual Machines

Virtual Machines - parallel execution

Virtual Machine Scale Sets
Networking - DNS
Traffic Manager
Application Gateway
SQL Database
Redis Cache
App Service - Web Apps
Resource Groups
Key Vault

Give it a try

You can run the samples above or go straight to our GitHub repo. Give it a try and let us know what do you think (via e-mail or comments below), particularly -

  • Usability and effectiveness of the new management libraries for Java.
  • What Azure services you would like to see supported soon?
  • What additional scenarios should be illustrated as sample code?

Over the next few weeks, we will be adding support for more Azure services and applying finishing touches to the API.
