makes it easy to add a cloud backend right from your IDE. With a single command you can generate a complete project that includes an App Engine backend
and an endpoints module
to access the backend from your app. The project also includes built-in support for Google Cloud Messaging
(GCM), to make it easy to sync data across multiple devices.
With Android Studio you can develop and test your client and server code together in a single environment, and you can generate new endpoints to add your own custom cloud services. When you are ready, you can build and run your server side code locally and even deploy it to production, direct from Android Studio.
The post below shows you how to get started.
