As I like to tinker and I saw that there is a full blown Java SDK for managing your Azure resources I thought: "Is it possible to use the Java SDK together with JShell to interact with Azure?".
I tried it out with AdoptOpenJDK 12 and I got it to work! Do you want to know how? Well, download the tar.gz bundle and read the README.md to get started.
For some examples on how to create resources, inspect resources, etc, with the SDK using Java, and thus JShell, see https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-management-libraries-for-java-generally-available-now/
Let me know what you think! Send your comments to blog (at) manorrock (dot) com.
