Stax Networks, a Seattle-based startup, has launched a Google like AppEngine for Java applications. The platform allows Java developers to create, test and deploy Java applications on Stax, which is built on top of Amazon EC 2 infrastructure.  Stax is not charging developers at the moment, but you can expect them to provide premium model for developers in order to market and promote their services and products as the size of the services increase. The company has raised a venture round from Baseline Ventures in late 2007, which is rumored to be under $1 million.
