Got two books on Google App Engine for Java

Recently I got two books on Google App Engine for Java. Programming Google App Engine by Oreilly and Beginning Google App Engine by Apress. There is less material and comprehensive online tutorials available on this. So its better that you read book on it. I started reading Oreilly’s book. I completed some of the basic components so quickly by given code examples in the book. Its always a good start on some new technology, if you have books in your pocket.

Domain is not working without www prefix in GAE

The current issue I am working on is to make my naked domain http://mydomain.com to redirect to http://www.mydomain.com in Google App Engine. With www prefix I have configured my domain. But my naked domain is not working. I just found on Google support site that they are no more supporting naked URLs for their app engine.
