 Exploring Lift: Scala-based Web Framework
 
 http://www.apress.com/book/view/1430224215
 
 Lift is an exciting new framework that leverages the Scala programming
 language to offer an innovative approach to creating web applications.
 Lift provides enormous flexibility and functionality while keeping
 your code simple.
 
 Exploring Lift is brought to you by Derek Chen-Becker, Marius Danciu,
 and Tyler Weir, three committers on the Lift project. The book not
 only covers the fundamentals of building a comprehensive Lift-based
 application, but contains multiple chapters on advanced functionality
 such as AJAX, Comet and custom URL rewriting. Extensive code samples
 are given throughout the book to demonstrate practical application,
 and a complete demo app is built from the ground up to reinforce the
 information presented.
 What you'll learn
 
 * How to get a basic Lift application up and running quickly using
 Maven's archetypes
 * How to generate and process forms, including file uploads
 * How to use the SiteMap framework to provide a custom site menu
 and programmatic access control to your application's pages
 * Database access using Lift's Mapper framework as well as how to
 integrate the Java Persistence Architecture
 * How to use custom URL rewriting and request dispatch to easily
 provide user-friendly URLs and powerful servlet-like functionality
 * How to easily internationalized (I18N) your application
 * And much more!
 
 Who this book is for?
 
 Anyone interested in getting the most out of their web applications
 and who appreciates the power and flexibility of the Scala programming
 language. A basic understanding of Scala is assumed, so if you're not
 familiar with it we would suggest reading David Pollak's excellent
 book, Beginning Scala, http://apress.com/book/view/1430219890 .
 
 Reviews
 
 Lift was created by David Pollak, an industry veteran who has
 repeatedly pushed the boundaries of what is possible with programming.
 Here is what people are saying about Lift:
 
 Lift is the only new framework in the last four years to offer
 fresh and innovative approaches to web development. It's not just some
 incremental improvements over the status quo, it redefines the state
 of the art. If you are a web developer, you should learn Lift. Even if
 you don't wind up using it everyday, it will change the way you
 approach web applications.
 
 —Michael Galpin, Developer, eBay
 
 Lift is an expressive and elegant framework for writing web
 applications. Lift stresses the importance of security,
 maintainability, scalability and performance, while allowing for high
 levels of developer productivity.

2009-03-20 Thread Derek Chen-Becker
To clarify, it's *intended* to be the exact same content. I'm trying to make
sure that any changes and feedback we receive makes it into both versions
but it's possible that they may be slightly out of sync. In any case, and
differences other than formatting should be very, very minor.

Hi Tyler,

Congratulations. I'm going to have to buy a new bookshelf to hold all
these Scala books.
