  • There is easiest way to follow Step 3 and 4. Click Help --> Eclipse Market Place

STEP 5
Create Web Application.

File --> New --> Web application or Simply click the g icon (blue background).


  • Enter the Project Name  as GuestBook and Package name as guestbook.
  • Make sure Google Web Toolkit checkbox and Google App Engine check box is selected.
  • Click Finish.

STEP 6
Now it will create the project structure like this.



There are some files that Eclipse automatically created.
  • src/GuestBookServlet.java
  • war/WEB-INF/web.xml
  • war/WEB-INF/appengine-web.xml 
STEP 7
After that debug your app like this. Click Run ---> Debug as ---> Web Application 
now it will create a server 8888 port so you can access it by browsing http://localhost:8888/

STEP 8
To deploy your app to Google App Engine right click the app select Google --> Deploy to App Engine




Before deploy get application ID from http://code.google.com/appengine/ .

Those are the major steps that you want to follow to create and deploy Java App Engine application to Google App Engine.
