Azure Functions, Microsoft’s platform for building serverless applications, has long supported a variety of programming languages but it’s adding an important one today: Java. Fittingly, the company made this announcement at the JavaOne conference in San Francisco.

As Microsoft notes in today’s announcement, Java support was one of the top feature requests for Azure Functions since it launched. This is the first time Microsoft is adding support for a new language in Azure Functions, too. Until now, the service only supported JavaScript, C#, F#, Python, PHP, Bash, Batch and PowerShell.


It’s a different Microsoft then the 90s bending to the needs and wants of users great job Microsoft.
