As we said a few weeks ago we are hard at work Improving experiences for Java developers with Windows Azure. Today we’re announcing the availability of the first Community Technology Preview (CTP) of a new plugin for Eclipse, which provides Java developers with a simple way to build and deploy web applications for Windows Azure.
The Windows Azure Plugin for Eclipse with Java, March 2011 CTP, is an open source project released under the Apache 2.0 license, and is available for download here. This project has been developed by Persistent Systems and Microsoft is providing funding and technical assistance.
This CTP is not feature complete, and for we’re now collecting feedback to ensure that configuring, packaging and deploying to Windows Azure integrates well with common Java developer scenarios.
To get more details check out my video interview and demo with Martin Sawicki, Senior Program Manager in the Interoperability team.
