Google Plugin for Eclipse is a set of software development tools that enables Java developers to quickly design, build, optimize, and deploy cloud-based applications. GPE assists developers in efficiently creating a rich user experience, generating high quality Ajax code using the Google Web Toolkit, optimizing performance with Speed Tracer, and effortlessly deploying applications to the Google cloud. These powerful tools remove tedium and free developers to focus on creating great application logic. GPE is the first suite of integrated development tools designed specifically for Eclipse Java developers to create fast, reliable and high quality applications for the Google cloud.

The plugin currently supports Google App Engine development and is compatible with Eclipse 3.6.
