Derek, Marius and Tyler are happy to announce:

Exploring Lift: Scala-based Web Framework

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, .
