Play2 Mini Project

Play2 Mini Project provides REST API on top of Play2

Scala

In the global package name space:

object Global extends com.typesafe.play.mini.Setup(com.example.App)

and then in your own package:

object App extends com.typesafe.play.mini.Application {
   def route  =  {
      case GET(Path("/coco")) & QueryString(qs) =>  Action{
          val o = QueryString(qs,"foo").getOrElse("noh")
          Ok(<h1>It works!, query String {o}</h1>).as("text/html")
      }
      case GET(Path("/flowers")) =>  Action{
          Ok(<h1>It works for flowers!</h1>).as("text/html")
      }
    }
}

The API is based on the always awesome Unfiltered library.

Extending the Extractor based approach with regex or simple matching is possible too:

object App extends com.typesafe.play.mini.Application {
  def route = Routes(
    Through("/people/(.*)".r) {groups: List[String] =>
      Action{
        val id :: Nil = groups
        Ok(<h1>It works with regex!, id: {id}</h1>).as("text/html")
      }
    },
    {case GET(Path("/coco")) & QueryString(qs) => Action{ request =>
        println(request.body)
        println(play.api.Play.current)
        val result = QueryString(qs,"foo").getOrElse("noh")
        Ok(<h1>It works!, query String {result}</h1>).as("text/html") }
    },
      Through("/flowers/id/") {groups: List[String] =>
        Action{
          val id :: Nil = groups
          Ok(<h1>It works with simple startsWith! -  id: {id}</h1>).as("text/html")
        }
      },
      Through("/cars/id/") {groups: List[String] =>
        ActorAction[String](myActor, Car) {reply: String =>
          Ok(reply)
        }
      }
  )
}

Other than this, there are many useful utilities available at your fingertip, take a look at the official guide of Play for Scala Developers

Java

In the global package name space:

//Global.scala
object Global extends com.typesafe.play.mini.SetupJavaApplicationFor[com.example.App]

and then in your own package:

 //com/example/App.java
 package com.example;

 public class App extends Controller {
   @URL("/hello")
   public static Result index() {
       return ok("It works as text!");
   }

  @URL("/foo/*/name/*")
   public static Result index2(String foo, String name) {
       response().setContentType("/text/html");
       return ok("It works:"+ foo +" "+name);
  }
}
