Publishing Java to Heroku Cloud Service

Heroku is a jvm-based cloud service. They have scaling appliations and many of the features you expect to see in the cloud. The big thing for me is that it is simple setup, simple to understand, simple billing and lastly - simple to deploy to. Since I am very big on minimalism - Heroku is a huge win in the jvm based cloud arena.

You actually publish to the Heroku Cloud using git with just a handful of commands once you get the initial setup out of the way. Since the modern jvm culture loves git, using git to publish is very natural for jvm development.
