Title: JRuby on Google App Engine Summary:

Google has just released an early look at Google App Engine for Java! Now JRuby developers can use their favorite framework to deploy applications to Google’s highly scalable infrastructure. In this talk, we will provide an overview of App Engine for Java, with attention to current features (and issues). We will also show a few demos, including deployment to the production environment, and provide some insight into (and best practices for) using the App Engine Datastore.

* Performance issues and workarounds
* Setup, configuration for Sinatra, Merb and Rails
* Working with DataStore via DataMapper
* Overview of appengine-apis gem (at code.google.com)
