With all the recent excitement about Google supporting Java for the App Engine platform, I’m proud to say that VRaptor2 just works, out-of-the-box!
All you have to do is copy the required jars that come in the vraptor distribution, configure the
VRaptorFilter) in web.xml and enable session support in the appengine-web.xml:
<appengine-web-app xmlns="http://appengine.google.com/ns/1.0"> <application>...</application> <version>1</version> <sessions-enabled>true</sessions-enabled> <!-- ... --> </appengine-web-app>
Being able to use my favorite Java Web MVC framework, to develop and deploy applications to Google’s cloud infrastructure, is really nice.
