Google App Engine to support Java applications
The world of computing is recognizing once more the power of the Java platform as the de facto standard in producing quality software for diverse devices - including web browsers accessing services available in the cloud computing.
After a growing number of articles discussing the problems of the so called lightweight technologies, it is time for Google to endorse the strengths of Java - specially the number and the quality of the java engineers. The new offer of Google is a clear statement that something was missing in the app engine and - mainly - that's great news for the Java community.
I just registered my account here, and I can't tell much about the new possibilities of Java App Engine, but I am quite optimistic about it and I recommend you to give it a try - let's see.
