What makes Scala so seductive? In this video, Dean Wampler of Object Mentor shows you why Scala is ideal for highly scalable, component-based applications that support concurrency and distribution. You'll discover how this new language for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) integrates features of both object-oriented and functional programming.

Learn how Java programmers can use Scala as an improved Java, and how developers from other languages can exploit the JVM's power and rich libraries using this state-of-the-art language.

You'll discover how:

  • Scala's succinct and flexible code helps you program faster
  • This language offers notable improvements over Java's object model
  • Scala's support for functional programming offers a better approach to concurrency
  • You can take advantage of Scala's built-in support for XML
  • Scala meets the needs of modern application developers
