Playing with Spring

Google App Engine, GWT, Spring 3, JPA and Google Spreadsheet

Posted by ice09 on June 7, 2009

If you are interested in Spring 3 on the GAE, there is a newer post about just this topic (and some REST!).

The previous post describes the main steps, this post just extends two classes and adds a “sync function”, which allows for syncronizing with data im a Google Spreadsheet.

The github project is here.

Caveats

  • There is a known problem with cookie handling, therefore the static block is used.
  • The spreadsheet document must be named tabledata.


  • The sample is quite stupid, to test the sync function, the usename sync must be used.

GreetingsServiceImpl.java

    Hi!
    Impressive! I have tried to follow your example…
    When run it I get the following error:

    31-Jul-2009 11:32:39 com.google.apphosting.utils.jetty.JettyLogger warn
    WARNING: Nested in javax.servlet.ServletException: init:
    java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/google/gdata/util/ServiceException
    at java.lang.Class.getDeclaredConstructors0(Native Method)


    Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.google.gdata.util.ServiceException
    at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:200)
    at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)

    What have i missed?
    Thanks,
    J
