More IntelliJ support for Azure Cosmos DB!

Theo van Kraay

In September we announced that the Azure ToolKit for IntelliJ plugin now includes support for Azure Cosmos DB. Check out that blog here. This month, we’ve added more features!

IntelliJ IDEA is an integrated development environment (IDE) for Java, KotlinGroovy, and other JVM-based languages. The Azure plugin allows Java developers to easily develop, configure, test, and deploy highly available and scalable Java cloud-native web apps in Azure.

With the latest release of the plugin, Java developers can now create and manage Azure Cosmos DB right in IntelliJ! For SQL API, Cassandra API, and MongoDB API, you can now create and delete accounts, databases, or containers from the resource explorer…

For both IntelliJ Community (free) and Ultimate editions, users of Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL can also now import, update, and delete documents in collections. This quick video below shows importing a JSON file to an existing container, and editing it once stored in the container…

If you are a Java developer that uses IntelliJ and works with Azure Cosmos DB, we’d love to know what you think! If you have any questions or feedback on the new Azure Cosmos DB functionality, let us know in the comments!
