AppEngine start up cost

I’m struggling with an issue where Google AppEngine will take over 30 seconds to do the initial loading of my hosted web-application. Now apparently it does take a while to load applications that rely on allot of different jar files. Which mine naturally does.

There are however some rumors on the AppEngine group that they are looking to improve the loading time of the applications. Here is a link to one of the discussions. Now this  is just one, I’ve seen others where similar statements have been made.

Now I’m looking forward to get the speed up on my application. Especially if I don’t have to do much about it. However there are some tips out there, due to my lack of computer at the moment I haven’t tested the recommendations but in the thread called: startup takes forver “stumpy” has a few recommendations to improve the start time for Google AppEngine for Java.
