Salesforce.com has updated its Heroku platform as a service with improved up support for Java. The company is now offering an Enterprise Java service that bundles together everything you need to develop and deploy Java apps. “A single Java enterprise application has several components,” explained Jesper Joergensen. “Every app requires a database, a caching layer, etc. This announcement is about integrating those together and provisioning it with a single click.”
Instead charging based on actual resource usage as it usually does for its cloud computing services, Salesforce will offer Heroku Enterprise Java for $1,000 per month per production application.
As part of the new service announcement, Heroku also unveiled new plug-ins for Eclipse and Atlassian Bamboo.
