Appcelerator backs hosting initiative that will allow developers to have their rich Web apps built using Appcelerator hosted on Google's infrastructure

Appcelerator has updated its rich Internet application platform to integrate with the Google App Engine.

Applications built using Appcelerator can be deployed to the Google App Engine, which lets developers have their Web applications hosted on Google infrastructure.

The Appcelerator Platform is an open-source Web platform. It fuses rich Internet applications and SOA. Developers can assemble interactive Web applications without the need for JavaScript or player-based plug-ins, Appcelerator said. Web applications can be implemented using technologies such as Java/J2EE, PHP, Ruby, .Net, Python and Perl.

Appcelerator for App Engine runs on Python, the scripting language supported by App Engine, Appcelerator said. Appcelerator will expand support to other languages as Google does.

"The launch of Google App Engine is an exciting moment for software developers and will unquestionably be a benefit to the open-source Appcelerator community," said Jeff Haynie, co-founder and CEO of Appcelerator, in a statement released by the company. "Our platform enables developers to create rich Internet applications without regard for the back end necessary for deployment, and App Engine is guided by the same philosophy -- remove the need for developers to deal with the server side and allow them to put together outstanding software."

Google App Engine was introduced in a preview version on April 7.

Appcelerator is run by former JBoss officials and has JBoss founder Marc Fleury serving as an advisor.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
