You can now run multiple Java applications on a single EC2 instance through an AWS Elastic Beanstalk Tomcat environment. Previously, you needed to create an environment for each Java application. Now, you can bundle multiple WAR files into a single ZIP file and deploy it to one Elastic Beanstalk environment. You can optimize the cost of operating several applications by letting each application share a load balancer. Please see our documentation for more information on this feature.

We had also added support for the new EC2 M4 instances to Elastic Beanstalk platforms in US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Asia Pacific (Sydney). To learn more about M4 instances, visit the Amazon EC2 Instances page.
