We are excited to announce the release of a new version of the Elastic Database Client Library for Azure SQL database supporting Java. The client library provides tools to help developers scale out the data tier of their applications using sharding, including support for multi-tenancy patterns for Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.
The key capabilities offered by the client library include:
Shard map management: Allowing you to define groups of shards for your application and manage key ranges for your shards.
Data-dependent routing: Enabling you to route incoming requests to the appropriate shard.
Multi-shard query: Supporting query across multiple shards for tasks such as data collection or reporting.
