    As the Java language can be executed in JVM only after compilation, it is used in SCF in a different way from scripting languages such as Python and Node.js, with the following restrictions:

    • Code upload is not supported: When Java is used, only developed, compiled, and packaged ZIP or JAR packages can be uploaded. The SCF environment does not provide Java compiling capability.
    • Online editing is not supported: Because code cannot be uploaded, online code editing is not supported. The code page of a Java runtime function only lists the ways to upload the code through the page or submit the code through COS.
