Java developers have many remarkably-similar choices for building web applications. Play! is a breath of fresh air, blending the power of Scala's strong type system and functional programming model with a rock-solid Java API that makes it easy to hit the ground running. With Play!, you can leverage your existing knowledge of Java to build stateless, event-driven, browser-based applications ready to deploy against your existing infrastructure or in environments where you can't use JEE.
Play for Java shows you how to build Java-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 contrast Play! and JEE patterns and learn how a stateless web application can fit seamlessly in an enterprise environment. You'll also learn how a little Scala can go a long way in creating tight, efficient Java applications.
- Building Play! 2 applications using java
- Leveraging your JEE skills for stateless, browser-based apps
- Integrating Play! into a JEE environment
- Deploying to Cloud providers like Heroku
Written for developers familiar with Java. No Play! or Scala experience is needed.
