brosque writes: Google has announced a new version of its Google App Engine platform with support for Java applications and the inclusion of J2EE server in the cloud. However, Google App Engine's support for Java is limited to the first 10,000 sign-ups. They are seeking feedback from the Java community. Google says the Java support is standards-based as App Engine uses standard Java APIs and libraries to allow developers to work with Java tools and frameworks they are familiar with. "And ensures the easy deployment of their Java code to all standard J2EE servlet containers, including IBM WebSphere, Tomcat and others."
