Over 60 incredibly effective recipes to take you under the hood and leverage advanced concepts of the Play frameworkMake your application more modular, by introducing you to the world of modules.
Keep your application up and running in production mode, from setup to monitoring it appropriately.
Integrate play applications into your CI environment
Keep performance high by using caching
Learn how to leverage external APIs without letting your application go down on problems
Use the play framework as a provider for your API systems
Implement your own authorization mechanisms, and different output formats
The Play framework is the new kid on the block of Java frameworks. By breaking with existing standards the play framework tries not to abstract away from HTTP as most web frameworks do, but tightly integrates with it. This means quite a shift for Java programmers. Understanding these concepts behind the play framework and its impact on web development with Java are crucial for fast development of applications.
The Play Framework Cookbook starts where the beginner documentation ends. It shows you how to utilize advanced features of the Play framework – piece by piece and completely outlined with working applications!
The reader will be taken through all layers of the Play Framework and provided with in-depth knowledge from as many examples and applications as possible. Leveraging the most from the Play framework means to think simple again in a java environment. Implement your own renderers, integrate tightly with HTTP, use existing code, improve site performance with caching and integrate with other web services and interfaces. Learn about non-functional issues like modularity or integration into production and testing environments. In order to provide the best learning experience during reading Play Framework Cookbook, almost every example is provided with source code, so you can start immediately to integrate recipes into your own play applications.
What you will learn from this book:
Write own render methods to return custom formats for creating custom PDFs or RSS and ATOM feed responses
Understand internal caching and implement your own cache in just a few lines of code
Use existing modules to incorporate legacy spring or guice applications
Integrate external APIs into your own application without affecting your application during downtimes
Add custom monitoring points deep inside your application to simplify bottleneck detection
Create your own API which gets exposed to the world wide web
Leverage the validation abilities of the play framework to make sure you always handle valid data to your backend
Create your own modules to make your application as reusable as possible
Improve performance by setting up multi node environments without struggling through the usual pitfalls
Provide integration to your operation monitoring systems like nagios or icinga
Implement messaging capabilities by connecting to apache camel or rabbitmq
Improve searching of data in a multi node setup by searching via apache solr
