You can now build serverless applications with new AWS-supported container images that simplify continuous integration tasks. Container images work natively with continuous integration systems such as CloudBees CI/Jenkins, GitLab CI/CD, GitHub Actions, CircleCI, and AWS CodeBuild. These make it easier to build and package serverless applications using Serverless Application Model CLI (AWS SAM CLI) – a developer tool that makes it easier to build, locally test, package, and deploy serverless applications.

The new container images alleviate the need for teams to create and manage their own images for continuous integration systems. Previously teams would pre-install the necessary tooling, build the images, complete security checks, share them across the organization, and update them when new versions of the tools come out. Now they can just configure the continuous integration tool to pull the images from Amazon ECR Public Gallery and always have the latest version. To learn more, see the documentation. You can install the AWS SAM CLI by following the instructions in the documentation.
