Sample Application with Google Cloud SQL

Three months ago I was able to participate in one of the Google App Engine based task management project.  However, in that project, I had to face some critical issues in searching as Google Datastore did not support many search options including LIKE search. It is known that searching is one of the essential parts of the enterprise applications.

However, Google introduced Cloud SQL last week and they approved my "Google Cloud SQL" request today (they took 5 days to approve it.:D ). Once they approved, I decided to develop a sample application with Cloud SQL. Gogole Cloud SQL database engine is MySql Version 5.1.59 and database size must be no larger than 10GB. Here I have added option to Test LIKE search. If you need more clarification, feel free to contact me.

Some people have issue when developing their application because Google currently doesn't support access Google Cloud SQL from outside Google App Engine. there for your local development you need to test with local DataBase(EX: Mysql). After that you when code release to Google App engine it's work fine.

For you local development no need to change the connection URLs.Just need to pass the VM arguments . I think you are using Eclipse IDE.

Go to Run --> Run Configurations
Add the following lines into the your project VM Arguments section.


After that add MySql JDBC driver in to your App Engine SDK/lib/impl folder. Then create DataBase and tables for according to requirement.
