The Play Framework is an open-source web framework with support for both the Java and Scala programming languages. It was built to fulfill the needs of modern web and mobile apps.
The framework is complete in that it alone can be used to create just a backend Java or Scala API or a full web application. For example, if building a full web application with this framework, you can include a public folder in your Play application to hold its static assets like images. In this framework, the JSON content type is a first-class citizen. It also features asset compilers for CoffeeScript and LESS among others.
