Lift Cookbook

Recipes from the Community for Building Web Applications with Scala

Book Description:

If you need help building web applications with the Lift framework, this cookbook provides scores of concise, ready-to-use code solutions. You’ll find recipes for everything from setting up a coding environment to creating REST web services and deploying your application to production.

Built on top of the Scala JVM programming language, Lift takes a different – yet ultimately easier – approach to development than MVC frameworks such as Rails. Each recipe in this book includes a discussion of how and why each solution works, not only to help you complete the task at hand, but also to illustrate how Lift works.
