You can test it online and discover all the potential of this wonderful tool !

Send a POST request on Google App Engine

To send a request, you need to use Url Fetch service.The URL Fetch service uses Google's network infrastructure for efficiency and scaling purposes.Here is the code to send a simple POST request on Google App Engine :

   public void send(String messageToSend, String date, String level, String servers) {

        try {
            String message = URLEncoder.encode(messageToSend, ENCODING);
            Proxy proxy = new Proxy(Proxy.Type.HTTP, new InetSocketAddress(proxyUrl, Integer.parseInt(proxyPort)));

            URL url = new URL(urlDest);
            HttpURLConnection connection = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection(proxy);

            OutputStreamWriter writer = new OutputStreamWriter(connection.getOutputStream());
            writer.write("date=" + date);
            writer.write("&level=" + level);
            writer.write("&servers=" + servers);
            writer.write("&msg=" + message);

            if (connection.getResponseCode() == HttpURLConnection.HTTP_OK) {
      "OK ! message returned:" + connection.getResponseCode());
            } else {
      "KO ! message returned:" + connection.getResponseCode());
        } catch (MalformedURLException e) {
        } catch (IOException e) {

I've made a small java project ( 2 class ;-) )that send a simple POST request : See

Feedback about the creation of an application on Google App Engine

Goal : Create a small alert's application on Google App Engine and evaluate the easiest method.
Here is my small feedback :

Test 1 : Create a small project with GWT


1) Installation
- Netbeans : Not working for me.Installation problem with plugin ...
- Intellij : I didn't find any plugin
- Eclipse : OK and it's easy

2) Create his own application

I want to made a small application but in my mind, GWt is too complex and not quick
Here is an example : see


Quick deploy on Google App Engine facile.

- Test 2 : Create a project with Play 1.2.5 and GAE plugin.


Easy to develop because of framework Play.


- I've some difficulties with my proxy
Here is the Play application with solution

- Play 1.2.5 isn't maintain.See if Yalp will work ...

First step with the cloud OpenShift of RedHat

My goal : Deploy an Play 1.2.5 on OpenShift.

For this purpose, I follow that link : planet_jboss

Steps summary:

- Create my application :

I create my application directly on the web site.It was quick and simple.
Moreover, all usefull command to connect with ssh and clone are available.You just have to make copy and paste.

- Gentoo install :

emerge dev-ruby/rubygems
ruby -e 'puts "Welcome to Ruby"
gem install rhc

- Initialisation (as a user)

rhc setup

- Clone of our application's repository

git clone ssh://XXX/~/git/monapp.git/

Then, I follow steps ICI

- Export of the war dans monapp/deployements :

play war -o /home/toto/monapp/deployments/cookies.war
git add deployments/cookies.war*
git push

- Check of the deployement

- Connexion with ssh on the RedHat cloud
- tail -f jbossas-7/logs/server.log


- I try the cloud at my job but I didn't succeed because of proxy and firewall.I also tried to use ssh over
90 but without success.
- At home, no problem : it was easy end fast.
