Research the main features of Google Apps Engine. Summarise these features in a blog post and comment on the main differences between Ruby of Rails web application development compared to Google Apps Engine. Indicate which approach you favour personally.

–       Lets you run your web applications on googles infrastructure

–       Has support for java or Python

  • With App Engine’s Java runtime environment, you can build your app using standard Java technologies, including the JVM, Java servlets, and the Java programming language—or any other language using a JVM-based interpreter or compiler, such as JavaScript or Ruby. App Engine also features a dedicated Python runtime environment, which includes a fast Python interpreter and the Python standard library. The Java and Python runtime environments are built to ensure that your application runs quickly, securely, and without interference from other apps on the system.

–       Share with the world or limit the users

–       Costs

  • There are no set-up costs and no recurring fees. The resources your application uses, such as storage and bandwidth, are measured by the gigabyte, and billed at competitive rates.

–       Restrictions

  • Developer has read only access
  • APPENGINE can only execute code called from an HTTP request
