You can now run your applications on the AWS Elastic Beanstalk using the new generation of Tomcat Elastic Beanstalk platforms built on top of Amazon Linux 2 Operating System.

The new generation of Tomcat on Amazon Linux 2 platforms come with Amazon Corretto, a no-cost production-ready distribution of the Open Java Development Kit (OpenJDK). These platforms support static files proxy and come in four platform branches: Tomcat 8.5 with Corretto 11, Tomcat 8.5 with Corretto 8, Tomcat 7 with Corretto 11, and Tomcat 7 with Corretto 8. Learn more about the Amazon Linux 2 based Elastic Beanstalk platforms in this blog post.

To get started, create a new AWS Elastic Beanstalk environment using the Elastic Beanstalk console or through the EB CLI and Elastic Beanstalk API. See Release Notes for additional details. For information on updating your existing applications to Amazon Linux 2 platforms, see Migrating your Elastic Beanstalk Linux application to Amazon Linux 2.

You can continue to follow the public AWS Elastic Beanstalk roadmap on GitHub to get updates on recently launched features, upcoming features, and to provide feedback on what you want us to support. More information on AWS Elastic Beanstalk at:
