Build reactive, scalable applications and integrate Java code with the power of ScalaAbout This BookLearn the syntax interactively to smoothly transition to Scala by reusing your Java codeLeverage the full power of modern web programming by building scalable and reactive applicationsEasy to follow instructions and real world examples to help you integrate java code and tackle big data challengesWho This Book Is ForIf you are a Java developer or a Java architect working with Java EE-based solutions and want to start using Scala in your daily programming, then this book is ideal for you. This book will get you up and running quickly by adopting a pragmatic approach with real-world code samples. No prior knowledge of Scala is required.What You Will LearnApply and control the Scala EcosystemMigrate Java code to ScalaDiscover Play Framework web developmentTest data using Scala's testing frameworksManipulate XML and JSON in ScalaLearn the Scala syntax interactivelyIntegrate Java projects in ScalaBuild reactive web apps using the Typesafe stackUse new systems including the Akka framework, the Play web framework, and the emerging Slick frameworkTackle big data challengesIn DetailScala for Java Developers is a step-by-step guide full of easy-to-follow code taken from real-world examples explaining the migration and integration of Scala in a Java project.With this book, you will first get comfortable with the Scala syntax and its Java-like ecosystem, and then dive into new ways of building reactive web apps using the Typesafe stack including the actor-based Akka framework, the Play web framework, and the emerging Slick framework for persistence. The book will then teach you how to review useful tools for unit, integration, and functional testing; demonstrate how integrating with external systems applies to the Scala world and what its benefits are.From learning the Scala syntax interactively to writing modern, scalable, reactive applications, this book will help you to take your skills to the next level by solving complex problems in a concise and maintainable way.
