AWS Elastic Beanstalk rejects ColdFusion WARs

Problem Description: In September, Amazon upgraded their Beanstalk service to support scripting during a deployment. This was a major change on their part. The downside is that it appears the deployment is more strict. The WAR files exported from the J2EE Archive screen are rejected. Working with Amazon support to deploy Adobe TV via Elastic Beanstalk they confirmed the issue was within the WAR file. 

Steps to Reproduce: Create a ColdFusion application; Export a WAR archive; and deploy it to Amazon Elastic Beanstalk

Actual Result: Beanstalk Errors with: "Responses from [i-xxxxxxxx] were received, but the commands failed."

Expected Result: A deployment

Any Workarounds: None yet. I am working on manually building a WAR to see if I can find the issue and resolve.

Deploying to Elastic Beanstalk is one of the fastest, easiest ways that CF developers can get apps on the Cloud. This should be a priority bugfix for the CF engineering team so that people who want to run their apps in the cloud can do so easily with Beanstalk and use Adobe CF -- rather than having to use Railo, which does not have this problem.

This is not under plans for the time being. We will re-open this if we want to consider this in the future.
