In this session, we will go step by step through the creation of a Google App Engine (GAE) application using the Java Runtime. This will be a beginner level session with respect to Google App Engine, but, a good understanding of how to build web applications in Java will be assumed. The focus will be on what you need to know to work properly within the limitations imposed by the Java Runtime for GAE. The code of the sample application is available online and those with a GAE account and a prepared laptop can participate in this session as a hands-on lab. Please see the wiki entry for this session for link to the sample code and additional instructions on laptop setup in order to follow along during session.
