Mashups using the same API (2654)
Google Cloud Platform continues to roll out consistent updates to its App Engine platform-as-a-service (PaaS). Its latest release, version 1.9.0, makes available App Engine Modules, which aims to help developers break their applications into logical components to bring significant efficiency to both cost and performance. The update also includes a MapReduce library for Java and several PHP Runtime improvements.
