Play Framework & Modern Java Web App Development

Modern Web Applications have evolved.  We expect higher development productivity like Ruby on Rails.  We expect to be able to scale both up and out by leveraging cloud platforms like Amazon EC2.  We expect to deal with JSON and WebSockets as first class citizens.  We expect real-time communication, and integration with both traditional relation databases and NoSQL semi-structured databases.  What's a Java Web App Developer to do?

In this session, you will be introduced to Play Framework, a leading "next generation" Java Web Development framework used by LinkedIn, Gilt Group and others.  Play Framework 2.0 bypasses the JEE container model completely to embrace HTTP and its stateless nature directly.   It was designed specially for developer productivity, scalability, and building modern web applications, all while taking advantage of the existing Java ecosystem. Play Framework is written in Scala but can support development in either Java or Scala.

We will cover:

  • The Core ideas behind Play Framework
  • Getting Started with your first project in about 15 minutes
  • Walk through building a simple Java application in real time
