Installing Play Framework

This recipe will guide you through installing Play Framework 2.3 for local development. This section will guide you on the prerequisite installations for Play Framework, such as the Java Development Kit (JDK), and the necessary steps to ensure that Play Framework has access to the JDK's binaries.
