Play 2.0 is a high productivity Java and Scala Web application framework, integrating all components and API needed for modern Web application development.
It is based on a lightweight stateless Web friendly architecture and features predictable and minimal resources consumption (CPU, Memory, Threads) for highly scalable applications thanks to its reactive model based on Iteratee IO.
For convenience, you should add the framework installation directory to your system PATH. On UNIX systems will be something like:
On windows systems you'll need to set it in the global environment variables.
If you’re on UNIX, make sure that the play script is executable (otherwise do a chmod a+x play).
Enter any existing Play 2.0 application directory and use the
play command to launch the development console:
$ cd ~/workspace/myApplication $ play
You can also directly use
play run to run the application:
$ cd ~/workspace/myApplication $ play run
play new yourNewApplication to create a new application:
$ cd ~/workspace $ play new myNewApplication
Once the application is created, use it as any existing application:
$ cd myNewApplication $ play
Running the sample applications
There are several samples applications included in the
samples/ directory. For example, to run the included Scala Hello World application:
$ cd ~/workspace/play2.0/samples/scala/helloworld/ $ play run
The application will be available on port 9000.
