Exploring Lift

Free eBook: Exploring Lift

“Exploring Lift”, the free pdf version of the “The Definitive Guide to Lift: A Scala-based Web Framework” published by Apress. This book will educate you about Lift, a great framework for building compelling web applications.


Lift is designed to make powerful techniques easily accessible, while keeping the overall framework simple and flexible. Lift makes it fun to develop because it lets you focus on the interesting parts of coding. For those of you have experience with other web frameworks such as Struts, Tapestry, Rails, etcetera, you must be asking yourself, “Why another framework? Does Lift really solve problems any differently or more effectively than the ones I’ve used before?” Based on our experience (and that of others in the growing Lift community), the answer is an emphatic, “Yes!” Lift has cherrypicked the best ideas from a number of other frameworks, while creating some novel ideas of its own. It’s this combination of a solid foundation and new techniques that makes Lift so powerful.
