Java on Azure Tooling Update – May 2023

Jialuo Gan

Hi everyone, welcome to the May update of Java on Azure Developer tools. In this update, we will introduce Azure Container Registry User Journey Enhancement and Azure Monitor Improvement. We hope you like these features and enjoy a smooth experience with our Azure toolkit. Please download and install the Azure Toolkit for IntelliJ. Let’s get started.

May Release and Feature Summary

Azure Container Registry User Journey Enhancement

Azure Container Registry is a managed registry service based on the open-source Docker Registry 2.0. As part of a container development workflow, developers can use Azure Container Registry to build and push image from a Docker file, and then pull images from an Azure container registry to various deployment targets. You can read more in this documentation.

With the latest release, we have improved the user experience for Azure Container Registry. You can simply click one action to build your image and host it to Azure Container App from the Docker.file in your local Java project without too many manual steps. In addition, we have also made some resource management refinements including pulling the image from Azure Container Registry. Here is a demo of it.

Azure Monitor Improvement

In February blog, we first introduced Azure Monitor with the Log Analytics tool into our toolkit, which has been loved by most of our developers. We also heard from developers that they rely more on time-range control to monitor their applications.

Based on these demands, we have enhanced this experience and provided more fine-grained time control (hour, minute, seconds…) to monitor queries in the latest release. In addition, we also provide some monitoring support for Azure Container Apps. To use this feature, after you open the Azure Monitor menu in the Toolbar, you can view and run sample queries for Azure Container Apps in the left sidebar. Here is also a demo of it.
