  4. 4. Play! Framework Introduction
  5. 5. <ul><li>Simple stateless MVC architecture </li></ul><ul><li>No configuration: download, unpack and develop </li></ul><ul><li>Integrated unit testing: </li><ul><li>JUnit and Selenium support is included in the core </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Elegant API: rarely will a developer need to import any third party library - Play comes with all the typical stuff built-in </li></ul>Major differences
  6. 6. <ul><li>Uses Java but tries to push all the good things </li><ul><ul><li>from the frameworks based on scripting languages </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Get the best of the Java platform without </li><ul><ul><li>getting the pain of traditional Java web development </li></ul></ul></ul>Advantage

  15. 15. - Stack traces are stripped down and optimized to make it easier to solve problems </li></ul>Fix the bug and hit Reload
  16. 16. <ul><li>It is a very different thing to write a generic and reusable Java library and to create a web application
  17. 17. An easy-to-develop and elegant stack aimed at productivity </li></ul><ul><li>Java itself is a very generic programming language and not originally designed for web application development </li></ul><ul><li>Traditional Java web development:
  18. 18. Slow development cycle, too much abstraction, configuration... </li></ul>Lifting away the Java EE constraints

  21. 21. <ul><li>Play provides a built-in test framework for </li><ul><ul><li>unit testing and functional testing </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Tests are run directly in the browser </li></ul><ul><li>By default all testing is done against </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>the included H2 in-memory database </li></ul></ul></ul>Testing framework
