Google App Engine SDK for Java

Filed under: life — Tags: , , , , , — zproxy @ 10:05 am

Powered by Google App Engine

App Engine runs Java applications using the Java 6 virtual machine (JVM).

  • CPU Time: 6.5 hours of CPU time per day
  • Bandwidth: 1 gigabyte of data transferred in and out of the application per day
  • Stored Data & Email Recipients: unchanged

I think I will create an example how to write for Google App Engine in C# via my jsc compiler within this month.

Unless ofcourse they will support MSIL natively which I dont think will happen…

You may wonder whatever happened to MS Java or maybe J#

Some feedback from Slashdot on the Google App Engine topic:

[…] It’s not the restrictions, it’s the implementation. Normally, existing Java code could just be compiled on the embedded system, and compiler errors would specifically identify security reasons for specific classes/methods/etc being disabled. Google removed the classes entirely, so the developer will just get IDontKnowWTFThatClassIs exceptions instead, which are less informative.

It also contravenes existing standards, sort of like making “dangerous” files invisible to unprivileged users in *NIX (via some sort of arcane black magic, perhaps a modified (munged) shell or something…) instead of just setting appropriate file permissions.

Did you know that your application will be running on multiple VM’s. So we do actually have threading support, it is just i another form.

[…] It even supports loading bytecode generated at run time. That means that our new Java runtime can support any language with a compiler that targets the JVM

You need to take extra care to enable HTTP sessions to which you could write data. It may look like a vendor lock in solution whether it is or is not remains to be decided…

Build Flash Online

Filed under: life — Tags: , , , — zproxy @ 7:05 am

Ever thought of a flash compiler as a service? Online? The japanese wonderfl service at kayac.com has done it. As we already have some javascript online IDE‘s how long will it take to have online flash IDE’s? Google just told me that we already have a C# online IDE at compilr.com. As we are building skynet and all will google add an IDE to its google docs stack? For other languages ther is the codepad. The long discontinued YouOS also had javascipt a IDE.
