  1. StorageException should include information on relevant entities

    When operating on tables and blobs and something goes wrong, Azure throws a `StorageException`.

    `.RequestInformation.ExtendedErrorInformation` will give you a bit of information about what went wrong, such as this when trying to insert a duplicate key into a table:

    `The specified entity already exists`

    But it doesn't tell you *which* entities the failure relates to. It would be useful for StorageException to include the Partition Key and Row Key of related entities.

  2. Introduce interface for testability

    Currently, When I try to implement unit testing for Client SDK, we need to implement CloudBlobClient or CloudBlobContainer wrapper with my own interface. If official package introduce the interface, it helps developer easy to write unit testing.

  3. Support OpenJDK

    The new Java Storage SDK V10 currently relies on javafx which is only available in Oracle JDK. Please remove this dependency, so that one can use the client library also e.g. with an official OpenJDK Docker Image.

  4. port Data Movement Library to java

    Not sure if this would require porting AzCopy to Java/Linux as well, but it would be useful.

  6. The .NET client library should support TransactionScope

    Often when doing batch processing you may want a all or nothing approach when uploading to blob storage with multiple files. In this situation it would be very useful if the .NET Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.Blob classes supported being within a System.Transactions.TransactionScope.

    My proposal for behavior is if there was a ambient transaction during a blob operation it should support at minimum ReadUncommited transaction isolation (Higher levels of isolation could be supported via existing locking/leasing mechanisms in blob storage).

    Any overwrite operation will snapshot the previous blob, if the transaction is rolled back the snapshot is promoted back to the main data, if…

  7. Storage: IListBlobItem is way to large

    IListBlobItem contains 6 Uri objects (including contained objects), and then another IListBlobItem for any Parent items that might be available, all the way up to the root.

    All 6 of the Uri objects contained in IListBlobItem are basically the same. That is, they might differ if the specify the primary or the secondary storage or something like that.

    Since all the Uri:s are made public by get-based properties it should be possible to introduce a base class that implements IListBlobItem and store the information necessary to provide all the different urls as separate components, and then use these base components…
