|File and Location||Description|
||The class file (or files, if you implement your API across multiple classes) containing your backend API.|
||Optional file containing your API server code, if you don't include it inside your API class.|
||The web app deployment descriptor required for App Engine configuration.|
The contents of each of these required files is documented in the following sections.
The API class file
The API server file
