    Developing a Google Wave Extension Developing a Google Wave Extension Presentation Transcript

    • Austin Chau and Brian Kennish Google Developer Relations Developing a Google Wave Extension Silicon Valley Code Camp 2009
    • Topics Writing and Deploying Packaging Questions Introduction to Wave Setting Up Your Development Environment Troubleshooting
    • Introduction to Wave
    • Using Wave What would email look like if it was invented today, rather than 40 years ago? Wave combines email and many communication technologies since — instant messaging, bulletin boards, wikis, real-time document collaboration — in one place. It's also a  protocol  and  platform .
    • Developing with Wave: The Protocol We want lots of Waves besides Google Wave, so we're drafting the protocol specification in public and open sourcing our client and server code. http://www.waveprotocol.org/
    • Developing with Wave: The Platform
      • Embeds bring Wave to the world.
      • Extensions  bring the world to Wave:
        • Gadgets  let you safely run untrusted code in a wave.
        • Robots are automated wave participants.
    • Developing with Wave: Terminology wave  — A conversation and shared document in Wave. wavelet  — The unit of access control in a wave. blip  — A message in a wavelet.
    • Setting Up Your Development Environment
    • Tools Robots are currently required to use Google App Engine . You can sign up for an account at http://appengine.google.com/ . Java robots are also required to use the Wave Java SDK (Python robots are possible too). You can download the latest JARs from http://code.google.com/p/ wave-robot-java-client/downloads/list . Using Eclipse isn't required, but we recommend doing so because the Google Plugin makes it easy to create and deploy App Engine applications. You can install the plugin via http://code.google.com/eclipse/ .
    • Writing and Deploying
    • The Robot WAR File /war /WEB-INF/web.xml binds the robot servlets to the Wave endpoints . /war /WEB-INF/appengine-web.xml specifies the App Engine identifiers . /war /_wave/capabilities.xml subscribes the robot to Wave events .
    • Sample Code: Hello-Worldy [email_address] Does "hello world"-type stuff. Appends text, echoes submitted blips, and implements form UI. http://code.google.com/p/google-wave-resources/source/ browse/trunk/samples/extensions/robots/java/hello-worldy/
    • Sample Code: Stocky [email_address] Replaces stock symbols with real-time quotes. Incorporates third-party data into Wave. http://code.google.com/p/google-wave-resources/source/ browse/trunk/samples/extensions/robots/java/stocky/
    • Sample Code: Embeddy [email_address] Generates code to embed a wave in your webpage. Features all three of the current Wave APIs and two-way robot- to-gadget communication. http://code.google.com/p/google-wave-resources/source/ browse/trunk/samples/extensions/robots/java/embeddy
    • Troubleshooting
    • Tips Check your App Engine logs for errors. Go to http:// app-id .appspot.com/_wave/capabilities.xml   to see if your capabilities file is live. Make sure you updated your capabilities version string after adding events. Increase your log level in /war/WEB-INF/logging.properties , e.g., to ALL .
