Azure SDK Java on Mac and Linux


  • This is really a two part question.

    Will Azure SDK for Java be available for installation in Mac and Linux? I know I can get the libraries but without the SDK installed I can't run my application nor use the eclipse plugin.

    The next question is more like an enhancement request. Will Azure SDK provide an official API to Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, ...) ? I think such API would be a major advantage for Azure against other Cloud services.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi,

    I think so, you can foind Azure SDK for Java that works for Windows, Mac, Linu here:

    The next question:

    Do you want to use Microsoft Office API in Cloud application? Azure Cloud Service VM does not include the Office component by default. The workaround is new Virtual Machine, you can create a custom Virtual machine and install Office, then i think the Office API will be available for your cloud application, and you also need extra license for it.

    Hope this helps.

  • Thanks...After a lot of investigation I'm facing new problems.

    Azure SDK for Mac and Linux does not provide tools such as cspack.exe. I'm currently trying to emolate cspack.exe in mac. I know that this tools wraps everithing into a zip file and I'm planning to do this manually. I know it's the best idea but until this kind of tools are not available at least I'm going to try.
