About

Hi, I am Romin Irani, a software developer at heart living and working in Mumbai, India.

This blog will be focused on Google App Engine for Java and all my experiments with it. I plan to cover as much stuff as I learn about it. There are plans to convert this into a free online book.

Mar 1, 2010 : Version 1.0 of the book is now published and released. It contains 15 episodes published along with a bonus chapter 16: Using the Datastore API. Download it here: GAEJExperiments – version 1.0 – eBook

If you would like to read up my other blog, please go to http://iromin.wordpress.com

I am also active on Twitter. Follow me @iRomin URL :  http://twitter.com/iromin

Alternately, you can contact me via email at romin.k.irani@gmail.com

I will be interested in speaking about Google App Engine at any organization or user group that is interested. Do let me know if that is something you are interested in.

    Hey there!

    I am also working on GAEJ and building some funny twitter app. My expirience is going good so far, except using naked domain (my custom domain without www). Any how I am going with it. And I hope my application will continue running in free qoutas. I will share my thoughts with you and ask questions if I stuck somewhere. Thanks for the dedicated blog on GAE.

    Atleast GAE gave me the oppertunity to develop for my onw in the only langugae that I know 😦

      Tahir,

      Good to know about your application development with GAE and I am glad that this series has been of help. You can look forward to many more episodes coming up.

      Once you develop something, please share it here so that we can all access your application 🙂

    Hello Romin Irani;

    Well currently that Twitter App is still under development. Need to give time to that. I will finish it soon and let you know here.

    Meanwhile I just finished running my first program using JPA on GAE: http://www.pakzilla.com/2009/12/13/tutorial-jpa-on-google-app-engine/
    Good start for those guys who want to use datastore of Google App Engine.

    Sample app is available here: http://engineplay.appspot.com

    I also spoken on App Engine on a conference and delievered a workshop which can be found here: http://www.pakzilla.com/2009/12/19/spoken-on-google-app-engine-at-a-conference-in-uet/

    Please feel free to give feedback on it.

    Happy coding GAE!!!

    Hi Romin:

    Thanks for this series – very very helpful. We are also using App Engine and we are very excited about it. We have a running prototype of our app (using GAE python) at http://www.sootra.in and we are experimenting with GAEJ also.

    Looking forward to talking more and sharing our GAE experiences.

    – Hitesh.

      Dear Humfrey;

      I am also building some fun app on GAE. And running in the same problem of using my app with naked domain. I have asked this thing to my domain provider but they are also unable to configure it. So I have to place explicitly www whenever I tell some one about my app.

      Happy coding GAE.

        my website that you see here also uses GAEJ and works perfectly fine with naked domain as well. No magic here, i’ve configured the naked domain to be redirected to www.* domain at the domain provider level. This is a normal setting available with most of these providers, you may want to push yours to get this done.
