ABSTRACT: Play Framework
The Play framework is a high-productivity, scalable web application framework, with both Scala and Java APIs. Play is conceptually similar to popular web frameworks like Ruby on Rails and Grails. Like Grails, it combines the power and scalability of the JVM with the high-productivity of a modern, lightweight web application framework. In addition, its Scala and Java APIs provide a compile-time type safety that isn’t available in dynamic languages like Ruby or Groovy.
This presentation will provide an introduction to Play, exploring its features while comparing and contrasting its Java and Scala APIs.
