Google App Engine Cloud now supports Java

Vote 0 Votes

Google App Engine (GAE) group announced its support for Java; this will be the second language after Python in Google's App Engine. I'm pretty sure readers of ebizQ are very familiar with App Engine; it's a service from Google for hosting web applications on Google's Cloud Infrastructure, very similar to Amazon AWS. As Google celebrated App Engine's 1ST Birthday on April 8th, supporting Java will help developers around the globe to utilize Google's cloud infrastructure, this also enables developers to use other alternate languages like Ruby, Groovy on GAE Java Runtime environment. GAE team is also giving the first 10,000 developers an early look at Java language support.

Google also released a new set of features including support for cron jobs to schedule recurring tasks/scripts, other features include database import tool to move data into GAE and Secure Data Connector to enable GAE to access data behind a firewall. I personally feel these features should have been released earlier. If you are a Java Developer and use Eclipse as you development environment they have also released an Eclipse Plugin. Read more about this release at Google App Engine Blog . If you are an Enterprise Architect/Developer or Manager utilizing GAE, I would love to hear your feedback on GAE.

Keep up with what's hot in the world of business and IT integration.
