Book Description

Google Application Engine is a cloud computing technology that lets you run web applications that are easy to build and maintain as well as being scaled and load-balanced automatically. To build interesting and interactive web applications developers are turning to Java. However, building and deploying scalable web applications using Google Web Toolkit and Google App Engine for Java can be challenging even to developers. The start to finish approach of this book helps you meet these challenges.

This book is designed to give developers all the information they need to develop their own GAE+GWT applications, with a particular focus on some of the technologies useful for building scalable social-media-oriented applications. It is an easy-to-follow guide that shows you how to get the most out of combining the powerful features of GAE and GWT. It provides you with solutions to many of the problems that arise in developing, maintaining, and scaling web applications.

The book introduces you to the features of Google App Engine (GAE) and the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) to help you build interesting and interactive real-world AJAX applications. Over the course of the book, you are guided by the development of a sample application using the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) plugin for Eclipse. To make things easier for you, all application building blocks are explained in detail, walking you through the development process step by step.

The book teaches you the key technologies and methodologies that can be applied to developing your application locally, enhancing your application functionality and accelerating performance, integrating your application with Google Accounts, Facebook, and Twitter as well as monitoring and maintaining your web application.

Packed with great examples and clear explanations, you will be able to build your own web applications that are scalable and reliable using GAE and GWT with Java.

What You Will Learn

  • Develop state-of-the-art AJAX web applications with optimized JavaScript using GAE and GWT
  • Explore the basics of using Eclipse via a sample GWT/Google App Engine application generated automatically by the Google plugin
  • Learn how GWT works as an AJAX framework, and why it makes you more productive as a developer
  • Use GWT RPC for easy client-server communication
  • Develop a GWT + App Engine application locally and use Eclipse for "one-click" deployment
  • Construct GWT user-interface elements using UIBinder, so that layout and style information is separated from logic
  • Integrate your application with Google Accounts, Facebook, and Twitter for user authentication and information retrieval
  • Delve deeper, to investigate datastore-related ways to help increase the robustness, speed, and scalability of an App Engine app, and apply these techniques to our "Connectr" application
  • Configure, deploy, monitor, and maintain an App Engine application
