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.
Scala in Action is a comprehensive tutorial that introduces the language through clear explanations and numerous hands-on examples. It takes a “how-to” approach, explaining language concepts as you explore familiar programming tasks. You’ll tackle concurrent programming in Akka, learn to work with Scala and Spring, and learn how to build DSLs and other productivity tools. You’ll learn both the language and how to use it.
If you build your Scala application through Test-Driven Development, you’ll quickly see the advantages of testing before you write production code. This hands-on book shows you how to create tests with ScalaTest and the Specs2 – two of the best testing frameworks available – and how to run your tests in the Simple Build Tool (SBT) designed specifically for Scala projects.
