You can now develop your AWS Elastic Beanstalk applications using Apache Tomcat v8.5. Tomcat v8.5 adds improved performance, stability, with other notable highlights including support for HTTP/2 and using OpenSSL for TLS support with JSSE connectors.

In addition, AWS Elastic Beanstalk now supports and defaults to Apache HTTP Server v2.4 for all Tomcat environments. For backwards compatibility, you can still choose to run Tomcat using the existing Apache HTTP Server v2.2. Apache HTTP Server v2.4 provides improved performance, reduced memory usage, and asynchronous I/O support. You can upgrade your existing Apache HTTP Server v2.2 environment using the Elastic Beanstalk console configuration page or through the AWS CLI and Elastic Beanstalk API. See migrating to Apache HTTP Server v2.4 for additional details.

For a complete list of supported platforms, see Supported Platforms. Visit the AWS global region table for a full list of AWS Regions where AWS Elastic Beanstalk is available.
