BlobClient Class

public class BlobClient
extends BlobClientBase

This class provides a client that contains generic blob operations for Azure Storage Blobs. Operations allowed by the client are uploading and downloading, copying a blob, retrieving and setting metadata, retrieving and setting HTTP headers, and deleting and un-deleting a blob.

This client is instantiated through BlobClientBuilder or retrieved via getBlobClient(String blobName).

For operations on a specific blob type (i.e append, block, or page) use getAppendBlobClient(), getBlockBlobClient(), or getPageBlobClient() to construct a client that allows blob specific operations.

Please refer to the Azure Docs for more information.
