[Lift] Re: Lift for a backend REST Server

2009-11-09 Thread Wilson MacGyver

there are several advantages.

1: you get to leverage type safety and the excellent XML support
of Scala, and lift-json.

2: assuming it's not a open for all public REST server, you'd have to
deal with security/auth. Lift will help here.

3: In the past, every time I've done a backend REST server project,
soon or later, you end up going you know, I wish I can throw together
a couple of simple backend admin pages. Lift makes that easy.

 Hi, I'm curious what your thoughts are on using LIFT to implement a
 backend server for REST web services, e.g. respond to GET/PUT/POST/
 DELETE requests with xml/json.

 Is this a good use of Lift? What are the advantages of doing this with
 Lift rather than just Jetty, or another library such as Restlets.
 Thanks!

 - Alex

This is why Lift usually wins out in my decision making - its just a  
very well rounded tool and yes, its great for these kinds of task. I  
would also like to point out that if you wanted to mix Akka and Lift  
for the best of both worlds, then you can do that too.

Rock on.

Cheers, Tim
