Stockwatcher Google App Engine experience

August 4, 2010 at 11:49 am 1 comment

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 plugins/, where VERSION is a version identifier for the SDK. For me it is assigned as C:\Program Files\IBM\SDPShared\plugins\plugins\\appengine-java-sdk-1.3.5

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”?>

<appengine-web-app xmlns=;>




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\\gwt-2.0.4″ />

<property name = “appengine.sdk ” location=”C:\Program Files\IBM\SDPShared\plugins\plugins\\appengine-java-sdk-1.3.5″ />
