Publisher Comments:

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

Book News Annotation:

Scala, a new language for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), integrates features of both object-oriented and functional programming. This quick introduction to Scala is for experienced developers familiar with object-oriented programming; however, readers do not need to have prior exposure to functional programming. Coverage encompasses command-line tools, third-party tools, libraries, and language-aware plug-ins for editors and IDEs. Code examples are given in a real-world context to show how Scala takes advantage of the JVM platform. A glossary is included. Wampler is a consultant and trainer. Payne is platform lead at Twitter.

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.
