Word on the street: Google's Prasad Ram said that Google App Engine will now support Java at recent Google developer event in India.

I've written multiple times about why Java is the right answer for the cloud. It will be interesting to see how Google pulls this off.

And while everyone notes that this appears to be a swipe at Microsoft, I can't see how Sun can let this pass. It's starting to get a little depressing seeing Sun on the sidelines as the cloud evolves without them.

I couldn't find any additional details. If anyone knows if/when this is true please comment.
