Introducing the Azure DocumentDB Java SDK

We are pleased to announce the release of the Azure DocumentDB Java SDK!
The Java SDK allows you to easily create, read, update, and delete various DocumentDB resources as well as manage advanced configuration settings.

As usual, you can find all of the source code available via github:

git clone git://

As a fully open-sourced SDK, we love and welcome your contributions. Please follow the instructions provided in the Azure Projects Contributions Guidelines.

You can also get the latest binaries, ready to use within your project, via Maven:


For more information on DocumentDB, Microsoft’s fully managed NoSQL document database service in the cloud, go here.

We have published a quick tutorial on how to create a Java web application on top of DocumentDB to help you get started.

If you need any help, please reach out to us on the Azure DocumentDB Developer Forums on MSDN or the developer forums on stack overflow.
