Scala developers have many options for Web development frameworks tailored to their language, in additional to other Java Virtual Machine-based Web frameworks written in other languages. Scala's best-known Web framework is Lift, which was explored in two previous columns. This column surveys the other Scala alternatives and dives into three representative examples — Play, Scalatra, and Finagle.
