Lift is a new web development framework built on the Scala programming language. Lift shortens development cycles because it is streamlined, production-ready, scalable, and leverages standards and the Java Virtual Machine. Lift in Action is a step-by-step exploration of the Lift web framework. It opens by presenting the core of the Lift framework, along with enough Scala to get started. Then, the carefully crafted, well-explained, progressive examples quickly have readers building something real. A sample application covers most of Lift's key concepts while introducing architectural and development strategies to build good Lift apps. By the end, all of Lift's features and components have been systematically explored.
