"We're excited about the possibilities of bringing together Force.com and App Engine with Java," said Jeff Douglas, Senior Salesforce.com Platform Developer, Informa Plc.

Force.com for Google App Engine - Connecting the Clouds

Force.com for Google App Engine provides developers a set of tools and services to build new kinds of Web and business applications entirely in the cloud. Instead of having to manage and maintain their own on-premise infrastructure, developers can use real-time cloud computing infrastructure from Google and salesforce.com to develop and deploy new applications on the Web. Force.com for App Engine will accelerate the success developers have had with App Engine in building Web applications, and makes it easy for them to integrate their App Engine apps to enterprise data stored in Force.com.

With Force.com for App Engine, Web applications built on App Engine can leverage enterprise data stored in Force.com. The new Force.com for Google App Engine gives developers:

  • Java libraries designed to run on Google App Engine, allowing App Engine apps to read and write to Force.com using the Force.com SOAP API
  • A means to leverage Java in the scalable App Engine cloud environment and interact directly with the native database, workflow and logic capabilities in Force.com
  • App Engine developers gain easy access to Force.com services and capabilities including mobile, analytics, security and sharing models, user authentication, multi-language and currency support and more.

Additionally, Force.com for Google App Engine includes:

  • An open source SOAP Web Service client that provides transportation and object level access from Google App Engine applications directly into the Force.com platform. The Web Service client can also be used with other non-Force.com WSDLs and is available at both developer.force.com and code.google.com.
  • Complete Java docs for the Web Service client, including Java source code
  • Complete Java docs for the partner SOAP library, including Java source code
  • Getting Started guide for Force.com and Google App Engine developers to get up and running quickly
  • A sample application that combines both cloud computing platforms to build a simple catalog shopping experience
