Setting up your development environment

Use the following steps to set up your local environment for developing and deploying your App Engine services:

  1. Install the latest release of Java.

    See Java runtime environment for a list of the supported versions.

  2. Install and initialize the gcloud CLI for deploying and managing your apps. If you already have the gcloud CLI installed and initialized, run the gcloud components update command to update to the latest release.

    By downloading, you agree to be bound by the Terms that govern use of the gcloud CLI for App Engine.

  3. Install the gcloud component that includes the App Engine extension for Java 11/17. If you used the apt or yum package managers to install the gcloud CLI, use those same package managers to install the gcloud component.

    Otherwise, use the following command:

    gcloud components install app-engine-java
