Part 1. Getting started

Part 1 tells you what Play is and what a basic application looks like.

Chapter 1 introduces Play, its origins, and its key features. We show a simple example to make it concrete and the basics of the components of every Play application.

Chapter 2 gives more details about a Play application’s components by building a basic but complete Play application. We show how to make a full application with all the common layers of a Play application, including multiple pages and input validation. This application will serve as a basis for other samples in the book.
