We are excited to announce that AWS Elastic Beanstalk supports Tomcat 7. Starting today, you can launch Tomcat 7 environments and deploy applications that use the latest Servlet 3.0 specifications, JSP 2.2 and JSP-EL 2.2. Click here to learn about AWS Elastic Beanstalk.
The AWS Toolkit for Eclipse also supports a new server type called "AWS Elastic Beanstalk for Tomcat 7". Click here for more information on using the AWS Toolkit for Eclipse with Elastic Beanstalk.
Tomcat 7 is now the default for new environments. Since this is a major revision of Tomcat, your existing environments will not be changed and you may continue to choose Tomcat 6 for new environments. To launch a new Tomcat 7 environment, simply complete the following steps:
- In the AWS Management Console, make sure the application you’d like to migrate is selected.
- Click on Launch New Environment in the top right corner.
- From the Select an existing application version drop down, choose the application version that you’d like to run on Tomcat 7.
- From the Container Type drop-down, select the Tomcat 7 container that best fits your application and complete the rest of the wizard with the settings that work for your application.
