I am taking in two images .jpg and .png and I'd like rotate one and overlay it onto the other using SRC_OVER available in Java 2D. Then output this new image as a .png. It would be nice to see some pseudo code as I am not familiar with Java 2D.

Use javax.imageio.ImageIO to read and write your images.
Use each BufferedImage's Graphics2D Objects to draw the images.

Here is the Java documentation for Graphics2D.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yeah I found that SRC_OVER example and it paints objects. I'd like an example of bringing in image files and using it.

Here is an example i wrote of what you want.
import java.io.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.image.*;
import javax.imageio.*;
 
class Example
{
	public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception
	{
		BufferedImage canvas = ImageIO.read(new File("Image1.jpg"));
		BufferedImage overlay = ImageIO.read(new File("Forest.jpg"));
 
		Graphics2D g = canvas.createGraphics();
 
		g.translate(overlay.getHeight()+(canvas.getWidth()-overlay.getHeight())/2,0);
		g.rotate(Math.toRadians(90));
		g.setComposite(AlphaComposite.getInstance(AlphaComposite.SRC_OVER,.6f));
 
		g.drawImage(overlay,0,0,null);
 
		ImageIO.write(canvas,"PNG", new File("Output.png"));
	}
}
