Told You So?

Thanks to Lakshman Prasad for pointing out that my prediction from May of Java being the next language to be supported by Google App Engine seems to be coming true.

According to this story on controlenter.in, Google made that announcement as well as the upcoming release of a new Android SDK on October 22 at their Developer Day in Bangalore October 18.

I haven't been able to find any additional information on this yet so holding my tongue in declaring my superior prognostication abilities. Certainly anxious to see if A) This is true and B) What the details are.

Still would be psyched to see a cloud JVM offering from GOOG. Especially if it had other goodies integrated like server-side JavaScript and Guice.

If anybody out there has more info on this don't be shy...

Its certain that Java is going to be the next language. the question is when is it going to be announced.
People are speculating, it is going to be before Microsoft PDC on Oct 27 (In which they are going to announce MSFT Cloud on .Net Platform, Microsoft Strata).
So it could be on Oct 22 along with the release of next version of Android SDK. Or may be later.
Thanks for linking to my blogs. Any more information on that I can gather, i will definitely write upon!
