Build & Run Scalable Java Applications on Google's Infrastructure

Final Release Date: June 2014
Pages: 420

With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.

Programming Google App Engine with Java teaches intermediate and advanced web developers how to build infinitely scalable applications with App Engine. Like Amazon's EC2, App Engine lets companies "rent" cloud computing resources. This book describes ways to perform common development tasks using App Engine APIs and services, using App Engine’s Java runtime environment.

The Java runtime includes a complete Java 7 JVM capable of running bytecode produced by the Java compiler, as well as that produced by compilers for other languages that target the JVM. App Engine is a J2EE standard servlet container, and includes the standard libraries and features for Java web development. You can even deploy your apps as WAR files.

If you’re a Python programmer, look for Dan Sanderson’s companion volume Programming Google App Engine with Python.

      Comments about oreilly Programming Google App Engine with Java:

      Google Cloud is changing fast, and so are build, release and dependency management tools. This book was great for App Engine concepts, but it needs a huge overhaul to apply to App Engine of today, and the build tools that go with it.

      Since this is an early release, I'll update later as I see updates. I had to resort to internet resources to fully learn to develop App Engine in its current state.

      The biggest weakness of this book would be if you are using Eclipse Lula and Maven, as it is GWT and Eclipse Kepler based. Maven changes everything, and GWT doesn't work in Lula.
