I am the founder and CEO of Data Geekery GmbH, located in Zurich, Switzerland. With our company, we have been selling database products and services around Java and SQL since 2013. Ever since my Master's studies at EPFL in 2006, I have been fascinated by the interaction of Java and SQL. Most of this experience I have obtained in the Swiss E-Banking field through various variants (JDBC, Hibernate, mostly with Oracle). I am happy to share this knowledge at various conferences, JUGs, in-house presentations and on our blog. Lukas is a DZone MVB and is not an employee of DZone and has posted 249 posts at DZone.

Will Another Play-Style Framework Make its Way to Java?

I’ve just discovered the Ninja Web Framework. This one isn’t “yet another framework”, it’s actually heavily based on the very popular Play Framework ideas. It seems to provide a substitute for the latter, since Zenexity andTypesafe have formed an alliance to further support Play primarily in the Scala ecosystem. Some people may feel that this makes the Play+Java combination a second-class citizen. The Ninja Web Framework is maintained by a Berlin-based company calledFinalFrontierLabs, who were great fans of Play when they were using it in Java. You have to love their company profile:

As some people seem to have regretted Play's focus on Scala, this framework is certainly one to keep an eye out for in the near future!
