Summary

Scala in Depth is a unique new book designed to help you integrate Scala effectively into your development process. By presenting the emerging best practices and designs from the Scala community, it guides you through dozens of powerful techniques example by example. About the Book

Scala is a powerful JVM language that blends the functional and OO programming models. You'll have no trouble getting introductions to Scala in books or online, but it's hard to find great examples and insights from experienced practitioners. You'll find them in Scala in Depth.

There's little heavy-handed theory here—just dozens of crisp, practical techniques for coding in Scala. Written for readers who know Java, Scala, or another OO language.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book. What's Inside

  • Concise, expressive, and readable code style
  • How to integrate Scala into your existing Java projects
  • Scala's 2.8.0 collections API
  • How to use actors for concurrent programming
  • Mastering the Scala type system
  • Scala's OO features—type member inheritance, multiple inheritance, and composition
  • Functional concepts and patterns—immutability, applicative functors, and monads

========================================​==========

Table of Contents

  1. Scala—a blended language
  2. The core rules
  3. Modicum of style—coding conventions
  4. Utilizing object orientation
  5. Using implicits to write expressive code
  6. The type system
  7. Using implicits and types together
  8. Using the right collection
  9. Actors
  10. Integrating Scala with Java
  11. Patterns in functional programming

Synopsis:

Fastest way for programmers to be productive with this exciting new "multi-paradigm" language, with combines object-oriented and functional programming. Programming Scala introduces a new language for the Java Virtual Machine that offers all the benefits of a modern object model, functional programming, and an advanced type system. Packed with code examples, this comprehensive book teaches programmers how to be productive with Scala quickly, and explains what makes this language ideal for today's highly scalable, component-based applications that support concurrency and distribution.

Synopsis:

Scala is a new hybrid object-oriented/functional language written for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). The Scala type system, while very powerful, can be daunting. This book helps remove obstacles by showing how to effectively use this language both on its own and within the JVM ecosystem.

Scala in Depth helps readers integrate Scala into their existing projects as well as introducing new best practices and designs that are emerging from the Scala community. This book covers advanced object oriented features of Scala, as well as functional concepts. The book also describes some fundamental coding styles that can prevent common pitfalls and help keep your code concise, expressive and readable. The book covers the new Scala 2.8.0 collections API.

Synopsis:

Learn how to be more productive with Scala, a new multi-paradigm language for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) that integrates features of both object-oriented and functional programming. With this book, you'll discover why Scala is ideal for highly scalable, component-based applications that support concurrency and distribution.

Programming Scala clearly explains the advantages of Scala as a JVM language. You'll learn how to leverage the wealth of Java class libraries to meet the practical needs of enterprise and Internet projects more easily. Packed with code examples, this book provides useful information on Scala's command-line tools, third-party tools, libraries, and available language-aware plugins for editors and IDEs.

  • Learn how Scala's succinct and flexible code helps you program faster
  • Discover the notable improvements Scala offers over Java's object model
  • Get a concise overview of functional programming, and learn how Scala's support for it offers a better approach to concurrency
  • Know how to use mixin composition with traits, pattern matching, concurrency with Actors, and other essential features
  • Take advantage of Scala's built-in support for XML
  • Learn how to develop domain-specific languages
  • Understand the basics for designing test-driven Scala applications
