About this Book


Scalatra is an incredibly easy way to start building HTTP applications. A small but dedicated base of coders uses it, but the interesting thing is that it has a huge total user base: from BBC, Tesco, and McLaren data systems to, IGN, and Netflix APIs, this little framework has a reach that’s out of proportion to its developer numbers. Written by three long-time Scalatra contributors, Scalatra in Action takes Scalatra development out of the realm of relatively elite coders and shows a wider audience the simplicity, scalability, and ease of use that have made Scalatra the framework of choice for big organizations doing weird and wonderful things with HTTP.
