How to create a Professtional Free Website with Google Apps

GAE hosting is available for Everyone. (Is this the end of hosting providers?) This is very welcome for all those people who have an ambition to put a free website with no adgood features, reliabilty and scalabity.

For Starters,
- you have to know or learn python (it is the only language supported on GAE right now) or just get started
- If you want your own domain name, You have to have one or you have to understand DNS, subdomains, CNAMEs, ANAMEs, MX records.

- Create an app in GAE (I will skip the whole tutorial on how to do it)
- Create a domain (buy it from a domain hosting service like godaddy - always keep hosting and domains in seperate places for better control)
- Create a Google Apps Account (Again I will skip the whole tutorial).
- Verify your ownership of the domain and connect it to google App
- Modify DNS MX Entries, set up your email.
- Create Custom urls for services (calendar, docs, etc) with custom sub domains urls.
- Add your GAE app in Google App Admin Dashboard (add services)
- Define Custom urls by adding them to this app.
- If you have a blog, make a custom subdomain for that too.

Thats it, you have a free website, with email and calendar and docs.

More updates with screenshots and more detailed instructions soon so stay tuned.

Alright.. That was a long absence. The whole last week I dint blog. I dint go away. I was "occupied". I was learning stock trading. Its very fascinating. I have a good weeeked blog for you all. Here is my experience. I can literally hyper-link every word from the following paragraphs, but I am writing it as simple as I can so you can look up the italicised words in wikipedia . I got a paper trading account from a brokerage firm . You need one brokerage account first. Then it can be an Equity account where all your money is yours or a Margin account , where some of the money is lent by the brokerage firm. Then I get Buying power , which is the dollor value of how much stocks you can buy. I can make profit by simple rules. Buy when Price is low. Sell when price is high. There is another more intersting way of earning money. Selling short . Thats when price is not high, per say, but when are confident that the price WILL go down. then buy back when its lowest. This is what

Appcache manifest file issues/caveats

Application cache (appcache) is a powerful feature in HTML5. However, it does come with baggage. Many (see links below) advocated ferociously against it due to tricky issues it comes with. For someone who is just testing waters, these issues may throw them off grid. Knowing them before hand helps reduce some unpredictable effects.

classpath*: making your Modular Spring Resources

Spring gives multiple options to load XML resources for building contexts. the reference documentation does explain this feature quite well. However, I am taking my shot at explaining the different practical scenarios ( by order of growing modularisation) For Example, A simplest Spring based web Context Loader can be configured with resources like this <context-param> <param-name>contextConfigLocation</param-name> <param-value>applicationContext.xml</param-value> </context-param> <listener> <listener-class>org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener</listener-class> </listener> You just need to put applicationContext.xml in WEB-INF/ folder of your webapp. However, Typically an application is n-tiered. You can also have multiple files setup and in relative paths. like <param-value> context-files/applicationContext.xml context-files/dao.xml context-files/service.xml </param-value>
