In case you were wondering, the answer is yes, New Relic for Java will be available on Heroku free of charge just like our Ruby agent. Here’s the official line from the press release: “On the heels of last week’s announcement of Java on Heroku, today we announced that New Relic Standard edition for Java will be available free of charge to Heroku’s Java customers through the add-on catalog. This will be in addition to New Relic Standard for Ruby, which is available today for customers deploying business-critical Ruby web apps on Heroku’s robust, proven platform.”
Oren Teich, vp of product management at Heroku said today ”As more businesses look to Heroku to enable their cloud strategy, providing application performance monitoring is critical. We are excited to announce the availability of New Relic’s add-on for our tens of thousands of developers worldwide and now growing base of Java developers with New Relic’s new production profiling and monitoring capabilities integrated seamlessly with Heroku.”
