You can now run your applications on the Amazon 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. See Amazon Elastic Beanstalk developer guide for additional details.
To get started, create a new Amazon Elastic Beanstalk environment using the Elastic Beanstalk console or through the EB CLI and Elastic Beanstalk API.
