AN EFFICIENT GOOGLE DATASTORE ADAPTER FOR RICH INTERNET APPLICATIONS

Johan Selänniemi, Ivan Porres

Abstract

In this article we present the design of a database adapter for the Google Datastore and the Vaadin Rich Internet Application Framework. The adapter allows us to develop Vaadin applications that can use different database systems and can be deployed in a private infrastructure as well as in the Google App Engine platform. The adapter uses a two-level cache schema to improve performance and reduce operation costs. Experimental results show that the use of the adapter does not hinder the ability of the Google App Engine platform to scale web applications on-demand to high loads.
