I was lucky to be one of the first 10,000 developers to get a closer look at the new Google App Engine for Java. Up until now it’s been Python developers who had all the fun.What’s it got:
The Java environment provides a Java 6 JVM, a Java Servlets interface, and support for standard interfaces to the App Engine scalable datastore and services, such as JDO, JPA, JavaMail, and JCache. First things first, if you use Eclipse there are some plugins that Google have developed for the development and deployment of Java apps for AppEngine. There’s also a good guide on getting started here. The problem with these sorts of things is thinking of something to code up. So I’m going to a think and come up with something. More later…..
