  • Ikenna Okpala Twitter:@kengimel 3 rd November 2010 Lightening Talk on Scala's Lift Web Framework
  • Lift Web: Introduction
    • Lift is a web application framework written in Scala and Created by David Pollak (@dpp on twitter).
    • To me it is expressive and elegant also caters for maintainability, scalability and performance. View slide
    • Design goals are security, conciseness and performance. View slide
    • It is an abtraction of the HTTP request cycle.
    • Continually bringing the best of other web frameworks and conceptsunder on umbrella.
  • Lift Web: ”View First” Approach
    • Lift's approach is coined the “View First” design
    • ” Y ou can think of Lift as having a modified Model View Presenter (MVP) that for the purpose of this discussion we shall refer to as View-ViewModel-Model (V-VM-M)” (Perrett, 2011, Lift in Action)
  • Lift Web : ”View First” Approach ADAPTED FROM LIFT IN ACTION MEAP EDITION FOUND AT: http://bit.ly/c5B919 Allows Invalid States. VIEW TEMPLATES <<STATEFUL>> VIEW/MODEL SNIPPET MODEL Change Notification Error Notices Execute Commands Apply / Commit
