Google App Engine and Google Web Toolkit each look really cool, at least on the surface. Lets see if they live up to the Google hype. I'm going to port an app that I did for a school project over to GAE and GWT, to see if technologies live up to the Gype.
I don't really care that much about databases, so any thing that makes working with them less painful, I'm all over it. The Google object datastore in the App Engine seems to hold out some promise. I just hope my hopes aren't dashed.
