Part 3: Lift in detail > Deployment and scaling

15. Deployment and scaling

This chapter covers

  • A guide to choosing a container

  • Deployment techniques and tools

  • Your deployment options


In this book, you’ve seen a lot of different aspects of Lift and how they can affect your development cycle. Hopefully you’ve learned enough to build an application that you’d actually like to publish in the real world and expose to end users. For the most part, Lift applications can be deployed in much the same way regular Java web applications can. By default, this means packaging your application as a WAR file, which can be done by pretty much any of the build tools commonly used in the Scala and Java ecosystems. Moreover, with Scala and Lift being based on the JVM, you can benefit from the many years of research, tuning, and overall improvement in the platform, not to mention great security, protection from things like buffer overflow attacks, and blistering performance even at very high load.
