Google Cloud: first create project, then create application

April 23, 2019

It seems quite obvious, first you create a project and eventually the application.
Well, as I could see it is not 100% clear.
If you just create the project, no app can be deployed and you would get something like

WARNING: Error posting to URL:

This application does not exist (project_id=u’helloworlddummyname-123456′). To create an App Engine application in this project, run “gcloud app create” in your console.
This is try #0

open Google Cloud Console, select your project and you should see something like this

Netbeans, Google Cloud and Java7-8

Again, this is just a reminder for myself … and maybe helpful for other Java-beginners 😉

Wanted to try Google Cloud … with Java…and Netbeans.

I have been forwarded this helpfull tutorial: How to Setup Google App Engine Server in NetBeans IDE

Found two issues, relative small if you are in Java world for quite a while … but I start as a total beginner:

Second: could not deploy the hello world app and had this error messagE: GAE Java7 is not supported anymore.
Unable to update app: GAE Java7 is not supported anymore.

Workaround seems well known: in my WebApplication edited appengine-web.xml and added


more info on appengine-web.xml Reference

That’s all! 🙂
