Passing JVM Arguments to a Java application on AWS Elastic Beanstalk
I'm a relative newbie to AWS and Elastic Beanstalk.
I have a Java application which requires me to pass JVM arguments on the command line. I need to pass a jasypt password and heap size settings.
I've read the Amazon documentation, which describes how to accomplish setting environment variables which I can read in Java using System.getEnv(MY_ENV_VAR) but I need to pass JVM arguments not environment variables to the application.
Despite much searching, I cannot find a way to accomplish this task unless I use .ebextensions. Is this the preferred route to go?
I discovered the following link in the Amazon Documentation
Creating a Procfile apparently is the way to go.
