More things that the GWT team made -- for you and your family! [Apr. 8th, 2009|12:28 am]
Lindsey Kuper

Since it's been a whole 28 minutes since midnight and Alex oniugnip still hasn't said anything, I'm once again left with no choice but to brag on his behalf about the Google Plugin for Eclipse, which he's been working on for a while, and which you can now go get!

If you don't care about Eclipse a whole lot (which, to be honest, describes me), note that this comes as part of a larger announcement about the shiny new Java support on App Engine. And if you don't care about that, note that this also means that any language that runs on the JVM can, at least in theory, run on App Engine now. In fact, Alex has a sudoku solver written in Scala that's running on App Engine at this very moment. Now that's awesome!

can mortals run scala on the google? I've been needing a project to make scala keep being the Language Of 2009, and Seamus stopped feeding me streamtech problems.
I like making wobs, though. I would totally app a wob for scala on the google.

Mortals can run Scala on the Google :) Go for it.

What's a wob? Is it like a blag?

it's like a blag, but when there's a blag you make a lot of wobs that don't much. When you wob, you make a blag that's just one, but it way more.

Officially confirmed: mortals can app a wob for scala on the google. Alex said that it was actually challenging for them to come up with enough material for that article, because it was all so straightforward that there was nothing to explain. Nothing to explain! That's a pretty great compliment about a piece of technology.
