The Spring Framework is one of the most popular Java frameworks used today. While it is possible to use Spring in Scala, it does feel awkward in certain places, because of the "Javaism" peering through. For instance, using callback interfaces feels strange in Scala; functions would be a better match.
At SpringOne 2GX last year, I introduced the Spring Scala project, which solves this particular issue, and aims to make it easier to use Spring in Scala in general. In this session, we discuss the Spring Scala portfolio project and its feature set.
We will also show a real-world application that combines robustness and maturity of the Spring Framework with coolness of Scala. It features a REST-based architecture with on Spring and Scala backend and AngularJS frontend to offer a modern, single-page experience.
