    Book details

The emerging reactive model is ideal for high-performance web applications that need to manage the unpredictably-bursty behavior of the web, along with the potential instability of running on networks not fully controlled. By using application components that communicate asynchronously as they react to user and system events, reactive applications are more scalable, responsive, and fault-tolerant than standard monolithic applications. For web developers working in Java or Scala, the Play framework makes it easy to implement reactive applications without taking on the overhead of building everything from scratch.

Reactive Web Applications teaches web developers how to benefit from the reactive application architecture and presents hands-on examples using the Play framework. It introduces Play as a framework to handle the plumbing of applications. The book alternates between chapters that introduce reactive ideas like asynchronous programming, managing distributed state, and fault tolerance and examples that show how to build such applications using Play. Readers new to Play will be able to learn from the ground up. Those already using Play will get a deeper look at how to implement reactive web applications effectively.

Review Text

  • By D. Drummond on 18 April 2016

    By going through the (well-thought-out) examples in this book, and reading through the generally clear exposition of what makes the Play Framework reactive (and what kind of programming styles and tricks are required), I started to understand what Play Framework is all about.The examples make you work a bit, even if like me the strategy is that you mainly type in the source code, paraphrase the comments, and do minor debugging / googling / search for Play 2.4.x templates when a bit stuck.The author's enthusiasm for Scala, Play, and teaching others how it all works, are really there to see. An excellent book.(This review based on the pdf "early-release"-version).
