Category Description

Security updates

Applied all security updates published in the Amazon Linux Security Center on or before July 23, 2018 to the Single Container Docker and Preconfigured Docker platforms.

Glassfish configurations

Made the following changes to Preconfigured Docker Glassfish configurations:

  • Updated the Glassfish 5.0 running on Amazon Linux configuration.

  • Removed support for the previous three Glassfish configurations: Glassfish 4.0 and 4.1 running on Debian configurations and Glassfish 4.1 running on Amazon Linux configuration.

As with other noncurrent solution stacks, if you've used any solution stack of these three discontinued configurations (had an active environment using them) in the last 30 days, you still have access to it. Other customers don't see these solution stacks anymore.

Note

Elastic Beanstalk supports automatic platform updates only to a new solution stack within a configuration—not across configurations. To migrate an existing environment from one of the discontinued configurations to the new Glassfish 5.0 running on Amazon Linux configuration, perform the following manual procedure:

  1. Create a new environment, using the new target configuration. Don't terminate the existing one yet.

  2. Deploy your application to the new environment.

  3. Fix any application issues resulting from migrating to the new language configuration. Iterate on deploying your fixes until you're satisfied with the application on the new environment.

  4. Turn the new environment into your production environment by swapping its CNAME with the existing production environment's CNAME. For details, see Blue/Green Deployments with AWS Elastic Beanstalk in the AWS Elastic Beanstalk Developer Guide.
