Play on Heroku

Having some time on my hand I finally got to check out play on Heroku. I have been dabbling with play earlier when I was trying to run Scala on it but this time I was trying to do some barebone Java app. For a chance from usual dev environment eclipse I was taking IntelliJ for a spin.

As opposed to the description here you need to say under VM args
-Dapplication.path=“path to your app”

The "." is just wrong and wouldn't work for me -- I guess you would need to start IntelliJ in the same directory your play app is located?

Anyhow, development was pretty straight forward. I enjoyed that heroku was forcing you to use git and the deployment was also very easy (compared to GAE).
