Heroku add Java support but dumps containers!

Recently I have reviewing various cloud solutions and what impact this has on the way you create/architect applications and I have come to the conclusion they are often way too complicated for most existing applications to be effectively hosted in the cloud in a scalable way.

However I was very surprised to see Heroku have introduced support for Java but I was more surprised to see that they have chosen not to include JEE container support.

Which on first thoughts seems odd but given the complexity of implementing a multi-language solution within their environment a JEE container would be an unnecessary hinderance in the performance/scalability of the application.

So yeah… good choice, I wonder if anyone else will drop the JEE container too in their Java/Cloud solutions?
