Over the past two years (2008-2010), Clojure (http:// has made quite a splash in two areas: functional programming and the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). Clojure is a Lisp implementation on the JVM, offering its users significant elegance, simplicity, and power. Although Clojure is a fairly young language, it's extremely well thought out and mature, with a vibrant community of talented and friendly people using and contributing to it. If you're targeting the JVM as your platform, you're doing yourself a disservice by not considering Clojure as an option. That being said, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and you must decide for yourself. So, let's take a look at Compojure, a Web framework built on the Clojure language, and see how to create and deploy a Compojure application on the Google App Engine platform.
