Google has just released an early look at Google App Engine for Java! Now JRuby developers can use the Rails or Merb frameworks to deploy applications to Google’s highly scalable infrastructure. In this talk, we will provide an overview of App Engine for Java, with attention to current features (and issues). We will also show a few demos, including deployment to the production environment, and provide some insight into (and best practices for) using the App Engine Datastore.
This presentation will include the following topics:
Performance issues and workarounds
Setup, configuration for Merb and Rails
Working with DataStore via DataMapper
Overview of appengine-apis gem (at code.google.com)
