Using OpenBD on Google App Engine? Please let me know!

Peter Farrell and I are working on our "Living in the Cloud: CFML Applications on Google App Engine" presentation for cf.Objective(), and we'd love to include a mention of any sites out in the wild that are using OpenBD on GAE. So if you're using OpenBD on GAE for production sites or even just some experimentation with all the cool possibilities available on GAE, please let me know!

You can leave a comment here or send an email to matt at mattwoodward dot com. Thanks!

I have a number of experimentation sites. Currently the only one in production is just a personal interest site www.hikethecanyon.org, but I am working on a packaged website solution for Cub Scout packs which is built on OBD/GAE. I hope to have it done prior to the date of cf.O(). If I do, I will update you.One of the things I have been focusing on is developing a good set of base service and bean objects that work well for OBD/GAE apps and a super light-weight MVC framework (yeah I know... I know.). This has really sped up development and taking a lot of the grunt work out of my way.

I just deployed my first test app on GAE but encountered way too many errors for it to be feasible. The demo app's "fileread" was also throwing an error both locally and deployed. I had to comment that out to get it working but even then the <cfvideoplayer>t work - http://coldfusion-test.appspot.com/demo/cfvideoplayer.cfm

I was just about to start migrating an old winery application (an access database application to CFML when I stumbled on OpenBD and GAE. I'm giving this a very hard look right now. Our business runs entirely on Google Apps (Gmail, spreadsheets, etc) so this might be the way to go if there is some ancillary benefits of having our winery app sitting next to all our current documents in G-world.
