Lift is a free web application framework. It aims to deliver similar benefits to Ruby on Rails, except that Lift applications are written in Scala instead of Ruby. The use of Scala means that any existing Java library and Web container can be used in running Lift applications.
Lift applications are packaged as WAR files and deployed on any Servlet 2.4 engine (e.g., Tomcat 5.5.xx, Jetty 6.0, etc.) Lift programmers use standard Java environments like Eclipse, NetBeans and IDEA. Dynamic content can be authored using standard XHTML editors. Lift applications benefit from the performance and portability of the JVM, the Java development toolchain, and the extensive collection of available Java libraries.
Lift was launched as an open source project on February 26, 2007 and reached version 1.0 exactly two years later.
