Azul Brings OpenJDK to Windows Azure With "Zulu"
During JavaOne, Azul Systems released a preview for their OpenJDK build for Windows Azure, codenamed "Zulu." Azul, a company focused Java runtime scalability with Java-expert Dr. Cliff Click, thought that they could bring a better Java implementation to Azure users.
Zulu is also integrated with MS Open Tech's Windows Azure Plugin for Eclipse with Java tooling. It seems like this release will be good news for Java developers using Windows Azure.
