This topic describes common issues about Web+ and solutions for these issues.

Why does the message “Your account does not have enough balance” occur in an event?

You can use Web+ free of charge. However, you will be charged for resources that you purchase in Web+. These resources include Elastic Compute Service (ECS), ApsaraDB for RDS, and Server Load Balancer (SLB) instances. The preceding message appears because the balance in your account is insufficient. You must go to Billing Management to add funds to your account.

What is the relationship between applications and environments?

The environment provides you with a set of runtime environments that provide services. An environment includes the following resources, such as an SLB instance, ECS instances, and deployment packages. You can create multiple environments that run an application based on your business requirements. For example, you can create a specific environment for daily development and testing and another environment that is only used for production. An application includes multiple environments. Environments that reside in the same application share resources with one another. These resources include deployment packages and configuration templates.

Which technology stack can I select to create a Java application, Tomcat or Java?

We recommend that you make the decision based on the following considerations.
  • Type of Java deployment packages: If the type of a Java deployment package is a WAR package, you can select the Tomcat technology stack. If the type of a Java deployment package is a JAR package, you can select the Java technology stack.
  • Type of containers: If you need an external container to run your Java application, you can select the Tomcat technology stack. If a built-in container exists in your application, such as Tomcat and Jetty, you can select the Java technology stack.

What is an application template? What is the difference between an application template and the Wpfile file?

An application template is a configuration template that includes a collection of settings and parameters. You can use an application template to create a new environment. An application template is specific to an application. An application template is subordinate to an application. You cannot use an application template that is owned by an application to create an environment that resides in a different application. An application template includes a complete collection of environment settings and parameters. These settings include settings about a deployment package and configuration files.

The Wpfile file is a general configuration file. The Wpfile file is a subset of an application template. It contains a subset of settings and parameters.

What is the local workspace for the CLI tool?

The local workspace is referred to as a working directory that is specified during the process of running the wpctl init command. Then, the working directory is initialized as the local workspace. All operations that are included in the workspace apply to the default application and environment that are specified during the process of running the wpctl init command. For example, when you run the wpctl env:info command, information about the default application and environment of the current workspace is returned.
