Stockwatcher Google App Engine experience
This entry takes you through the details of the Google App Engine (GAE) environment by making use of the GWT Stockwatcher application. Prior to doing this, I did try the Hello World example.
I has performed the Stockwatcher GWT application example already, but the solution code can also be found here which you can bring into eclipse environment. Note, there is a non-GWT Java tutorial on GAE if you prefer to just work with servlets and jsps.
Note to configure the GAE nature of your project: On project click properties -> Google -> App Engine . Here you can set the Google app engine SDK. The SDK is located in your Eclipse installation directory, under
VERSION is a version identifier for the SDK. For me it is assigned as
As well, by click the my application…
and then you configure a GAE application id that is requied for use of Google’s servers.
After configuring this you should have file which lists your application id (i.e. dmbgwt) : StockWatcher/war/WEB-INF/appengine-web.xml
<?xml version=“1.0” encoding=“utf-8”?>
Now we’ll start configuring the build.xml file with configuring the sdks of gwt and google app engine:
<property name =”gwt.sdk ” location=”C:\Program Files\IBM\SDPShared\plugins\plugins\com.google.gwt.eclipse.sdkbundle.2.0.4_2.0.4.v201006301254\gwt-2.0.4″ />
<property name = “appengine.sdk ” location=”C:\Program Files\IBM\SDPShared\plugins\plugins\com.google.appengine.eclipse.sdkbundle.1.3.5_1.3.5.v201006301254\appengine-java-sdk-1.3.5″ />
