Installing the Toolkit
See http://aws.amazon.com/eclipse for information on installing the AWS Toolkit for Eclipse.
|Apache Tomcat 7 support through AWS Elastic Beanstalk||
You can now deploy your Java web applications to an AWS Elastic Beanstalk managed fleet of Apache Tomcat 7 servers directly through Eclipse. Just create a new WTP server of type "AWS Elastic Beanstalk for Tomcat 7" and use the standard WTP tools to deploy your Java web applications to Tomcat 7.
See http://aws.amazon.com/eclipse/ for more details and video demonstrations of the available features, including how to deploy Java web applications to AWS Elastic Beanstalk directly from within Eclipse.
|Windows IE Caching||When deploying a new application version to an existing Elastic Beanstalk environment on Windows, WTP/Eclipse doesn't force a full reload on the internal web browser and you might see a locally cached copy of the last version in some cases. To get around this WTP issue, just reload the page again, or change Internet Explorer's setting for "check for newer versions of stored pages" to "every time I visit the webpage".|
