The Heroku Java Agent is a lightweight tool you can attach to a running Java process to log heap and non-heap memory usage. It is a simple, but powerful reporting mechanism that can provide essential information at critical moments.»
Java apps have traditionally managed TrustStores and KeyStores as regular files on the filesystem in JKS format with
This mechanism was fine when the state-of-the-art in system administration required copying files from server to server.
But in the era of the cloud, our apps need a better system.
A flurry of security vulnerabilities in the last couple of years have accelerated the deprecation of many cryptographic protocols and cipher suites. As a result, you might have run into this error if you use JRuby:»
The PostgreSQL JDBC Driver defaults to using an unencrypted connection. At Heroku, this presented a problem when we decided to move certain database types to dedicated single-tenant instances. Our hope was to improve performance for our customers without them needing to change a single line of code. But the new database instances required an SSL connection, which meant our customers would need to adjust their database configuration before we could migrate them.»
The performance of the JVM can’t be beat, unless you’re talking about its start-up time. The JVM isn't known for being fast to boot, and many application frameworks have only made the situation worse.»
In this article, you'll create a simple ClojureScript application with Leiningen, Figwheel, Om and a few other libraries from the Chestnut template. Then you'll learn how to deploy that application as an Uberjar to Heroku.»
In this post, you'll learn how to deploy a Docker-based Gradle application to Heroku using the Heroku Docker CLI. We'll use a simple Ratpack app as an example, but you can follow along with any Gradle application. This is a Mac and Linux guide only (until Docker supports
docker-compose on Windows).
In this post, you'll learn how to deploy a Docker-based Clojure application to Heroku using the Heroku Docker CLI. We'll use the Immutant Feature Demo as an example, but you can follow along with any Clojure application as long as it uses Leiningen to build an uberjar. This is a Mac and Linux guide only (until Docker supports
docker-compose on Windows).

You can test JDK 9 in just a couple of minutes by deploying any JVM-based app to Heroku.»
Many Ruby developers have turned to Node.js because it allows them to do the kind of asynchronous programming that improves throughput, latency, and resource utilization. Its inherent non-blocking IO makes asynchronous request processing natural. CRuby doesn't have a built-in async IO solution, but JRuby does!»
JHipster is a Yeoman generator used to create Spring Boot and AngularJS apps.»
Java processes on Heroku run inside of a dyno, which has a few restrictions that make it difficult to attach debuggers and management consoles. But it's not impossible.»
The 12-factor app is a collection of best practices for deploying scalable, maintainable and portable applications in the cloud. It synthesizes the experiences and observations we've made at Heroku after hosting and supporting thousands of production Scala applications.»
You only need one file with one line of text to run a Minecraft server on Heroku with my Minecraft buildpack. It solves all the problems associated with the use of TCP and Heroku's ephemeral filesystem.»
