This book walks the reader through development of a GWT and GAE Java social app called Connectr. Complete source code is provided. It covers the all aspect of the development and also teaches how to structure a scalable web app and what libraries, patterns and best practices to use. Even though I already knew some of GWT and GAE, this book takes it to the next level when it comes to building scalable and social apps. Here is some of what is covered: Google Web Toolkit interface building with UIBinder, CSS resource, client bundle, Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) with error handling and automatic retries, JDO, data store design, join-like queries, one-to-one and one-to-many relationships, pre-persist callbacks, transactions, Memcache, event bus, traditional MVP, MVP activities and places, server push with Channel API, Cron, task queues, XMPP, session management, authentication with Google, Twitter and Facebook and much more.

This book has a lot to offer. However it could use some more drawings or graphics but since the source code is provided, this is not such a big deal. As whole, if a developer wants to create a web app on App Engine with Google Web Toolkit, I strongly recommend this book because it made me avoid basic mistakes, taught me patterns and good structured GWT+GAE programming that is available nowhere else. In short it saved me a ton of time.

I am an experienced Java programmer but had no knowledge of GWT and GAE when I picked up the book. Clear step by step instructions are presented so you can get started with a new project on GWT+GAE fairly easily. I was able to follow the book very smoothly to build a project and deploy on Google's site. More specially I really like about the book is that, a lot of real-world project challenges and advanced topics are discussed. Overall, reading the book has been very enjoyable, refreshing and it's a valuable learning experience. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in learning about GWT and GAE.

This book is very useful because it discusses everything you need to build a professional App Engine application. I'm working on my own App Engine/GWT/GXT framework and it never ceases to amaze me that whenever I have a problem to solve, there's a good chance this book has something to say about it. It's very nice to use as a reference manual and the Connectr project, which is discussed in the book, is sufficiently complex and realistic to serve as a very useful example for future projects.

Very nice work.

Format: Paperback
It's a really good book to start developing with GWT and GAP, it covers all the esentials needed to learn this plataform. The only downside to me was that I would liked a more deep covering for Activities and Places, I believe it deserves a whole chapter. Nevertheless the rest of MVP chapter worth the reading.

I was following the online documentation for gae and gwt. I found the documentation to be an overload for someone just starting and didn't have a clear guide from a simple app to a full scaled application. This book walks through the creation of a full social networking application. It's well written, detailed, great sample code. It would be great if the author could update the book as gwt and gae is changing so rapidly (also going over gwtp, maven, objectify, and other commonly used tools would be great!)

Overall, if you are getting started or if you want a easy to understand reference to look up now and then, this book is fantastic.

I've been wanting to create a website using GWT and GAE and bought this book figuring it was the perfect fit. I was fairly dissapointed, the explanation states that this book is for developers with Java and OOP experience. I would edit this to state developers with advanced Java and web development experience. This book is not for the beginner. Had I not just finished a different book on Java web development I would have been totally in the dark with some of the concepts used (and not explained) in this book. I would estimate this book would be useful to someone who already uses GWT and GAE and wants to learn better practices as this is one of the main focuses of the book.
