Introducing the Play Framework
Play is a revolution. The Play Framework has completely re-written the rules for Java Web development. No longer do you have to wait for the compile, deploy, retest cycle. You can make your Java code changes, hit refresh in your browser and the code is compiled automatically. What's more, your errors are shown right in the browser.
Play also comes pre-packaged with an easy to use Hibernate layer, and offers OpenID, Memcache and WebService integration straight out of the box.
You don't even need to download or install an application server. It all comes built in with Play! The easiest and most intuitive Java Web Application framework around.
This book guides you through building an application from the very beginning, in a step by step guide.
