Build Comet applications using Scala, Lift, and jQuery
Web applications have gotten more and more advanced, and users are always expecting more out of them. One of the most advanced features is Comet, also known as reverse Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax) or server-side push. Comet allows for browser-based instant messaging, real-time stock quotes, and so on. Advanced Ajax libraries, such as jQuery, make it easy to write Comet applications on the client side, but getting them to scale on the server is still a challenge. That is where the Scala programming language and the Lift Web application framework can step in and deliver a scalable back end for your Comet application. In this tutorial, build a real-time Web auction using these technologies.

What's new in Lift 2.0?
Lift is a web application development framework that enables the building of web applications in the Scala programming language. Because it is powered by Scala, Lift can be deployed to any Java Servlet container such as Tomcat or Jetty, and can make use of both Java and Scala libraries and APIs. In June 2010, Lift 2.0 became available, and it boasts an impressive array of new features and highlights. This article describes many of these features and explains how they can benefit you in the development of your own web applications.
