Windows Azure Libraries for Java Available, including support for Service Bus

Good news for all you Java developers out there: I am happy to share with you the availability of Windows Azure libraries for Java that provide Java-based access to the functionality exposed via the REST API in Windows Azure Service Bus.

You can download the Windows Azure libraries for Java from GitHub.

This is an early step as we continue to make Windows Azure a great cloud platform for many languages, including .NET and Java.  If you’re using Windows Azure Service Bus from Java, please let us know your feedback on how these libraries are working for you and how we can improve them. Your feedback is very important to us!

You may refer to Windows Azure Java Developer Center for related information.

Openness and interoperability are important to Microsoft, our customers, partners, and developers and we believe these libraries will enable Java applications to more easily connect to Windows Azure, in particular the Service Bus, making it easier for applications written on any platform to interoperate with each another through Windows Azure.
