Getting Spring Python running on Azure/AppEngine?
I was wondering if anyone in the community was experimenting with Windows Azure in relation to getting Spring Python deployed in that environment now that Python is a supported language?
Same question really for Google's AppEngine, where Python is currently the only supported language?

are we actually sure this isn't already possible?

It's possible, the idea here would be to try things out. There's no actual reason SP wouldn't work, it's more a case of making it work as easily as possible using the SP facilities so that people aren't having to reinvent the wheel when moving an app from one infrastructure (local) to another (appEngine).
One of the things Spring does is abstract away and handle the peculiarities of the underlying infrastructure so that you don't have to waste dev cycles on those concerns, so this is a classic case of seeing whether that is achievable, or what needs to change, to make that happen with appEngine.
