Scala for Sling @ Jazzon 09

26 06 2009

Yesterday I gave a presentation at Jazoon 09 about using Scala for scripting RESTful web applications with Apache Sling.

In the session I showed how to take advantage of Scala to create RESTful web applications with Apache Sling. I demonstrated how to uses its DSL capability and support for XML literals to create type safe web site templates. In contrast to conventional web site template mechanisms (e.g. JSP), this does not rely on a pre-processor but rather uses pure Scala code.

There are Session slides and support material available here. The support material contains a fully workable demo application. A Scala scripting bundle for Sling is also included.
