Play 2.1 has become the main reference for writing web applications in Scala. It is even better when you use a database driver that shares the same vision and capabilities. If you’re planning to write a Play 2.1-based web application with MongoDB as a backend, then ReactiveMongo is the driver to do this!
In this post I share my experience how easy it is to build a simple application using Play Framework and MongoDB. We will deploy it into PaaS – Amazon’s Elastic Beanstalk for instant scalability and availability.
In this post, let's shoot to have our little app pull from the yankees database and render the results in an HTML table. It won't be pretty but we'll handle UX, functionality and and aesthetics in another post.
This post is going to cover the whole “getting up an running” for a simple Scala stack - namely Scala, Play 2 and Mongo. 2012 has been … (RT @kouphax: Starter for 10 - Scala, Play 2 and Mongo - Yo Briefcase!
I am very excited to introduce ReactiveMongo, a brand new Scala driver for MongoDB. More than just yet-another-async-driver, it's a reactive driver that allows you to design very scalable applications unleashing MongoDB capabilities like streaming infinite live collections and files for modern Realtime Web applications.
