This project contains a barebones example webapp.

This project is laid out like this:

  • app-engine-hello-world/
    • pom.xml is a Maven POM file that defines the project.
    • src/main/ is a directory that contains the code.
      • appengine/app.yaml is a config file that sets up App Engine. The hello world project only uses a single property that sets the runtime to Java 11.
      • java/ is a directory that contains server-side code.
        • is the main class that sets up the server.
        • is a Java servlet that returns some HTML content.
