It's been very exciting time for programmers these days with lots new stuffs to play around with. Today I'm going to try out building and android application and with Google App Engine as the backend.Download and install the GPE for Juno . I've already written the blog entry till this point. Next my aim is to do the steps instructed in the link below. I'll scribble down things to note as and when it happens.
More than this link. I'll be focusing on this video they did during Google I/O 2012.
Here is the secret link to download all the codes of Google I/O 2012 .
1. I installed mercurial in my Ubuntu to clone the codes I found at the repo link given above.
To install mercurial in Ubuntu just type in "sudo apt-get install mercurial" in the terminal.
2. Google does a wonderful job of generating most of the boilerplate codes and jars 3 times when we do this project. It helps to keep the development simple and fast for the programmer.
3. Something missed out in the video : at 38:30, you need to
Right Click Note.java -> Google -> Generate Cloud Endpoint Class to generate the NoteEndpoint.java file
4. If you have an error "com.google.android.gsf package couldn't be found"
Open the Android SDK Manager --> Extras -- > Google Cloud Messaging Library for Android , install this.
