Today, we’ll be revisiting our blog microservice example using the Scala programming language and Akka, one of the main components underlying Lagom. Event Sourcing First, let’s take a quick review of what event

Building a Simple REST API with Scala & Play! (Part 3)

We finished part 1 & part 2, which started with a description of the tools we’ll be using, and concluded with a fully functioning REST API built in Play! on top of a Reactive Mongo back-end. In part 3, we’ll cover the use of Spec2 and Mockito to write automated unit and integration tests for our application.
