This guide will walk you through creating and deploying your first Jello web application. For more details, please see the Developer's Guide.
Jello is a java framework for developing web applications on Google App Engine (GAE). As a prerequisite, you will need to setup a GAE project using the Google Plugin for Eclipse.
To create a new project, click on the New Web Application Project toolbar button. You can also access this wizard by selecting the Web Application Project item from the drop-down menu associated with the New toolbar button, or by selecting File » New » Web Application Project.
- Add a project name "HelloWorld" and a root package.
- Make sure the Use Google App Engine > Use default SDK is checked.
- Uncheck Use Google Web Toolkit as we will not use it for now.
- Leave the app id field blank. You will obtain an app id later before uploading the app to the cloud.
Right click on your project root folder » Run As » Web Application.
All the resources you need for your Jello Application are available in the pre-packed Jello SDK jar archive file.
