Play for Scala

Book Description

Play for Scala shows you how to build Scala-based web applications using the Play 2 framework. This book starts by introducing Play through a comprehensive overview example. Then, you’ll look at each facet of a typical Play application both by exploring simple code snippets and by adding to a larger running example. Along the way, you’ll deepen your knowledge of Scala as a programming language and work with tools like Akka.

Play is a Scala web framework with built-in advantages: Scala’s strong type system helps deliver bug-free code, and the Akka framework helps achieve hassle-free concurrency and peak performance. Play builds on the web’s stateless nature for excellent scalability, and because it is event-based and nonblocking, you’ll find it to be great for near real-time applications.
