Lift is an expressive and elegant framework for writing web applications. Lift stresses the importance of security, maintainability, scalability and performance, while allowing for high levels of developer productivity. Lift borrows from the best of existing frameworks, providing Seaside's highly granular sessions and security; Rails fast flash-to-bang; Django's "more than just CRUD is included"; Wicket's designer-friendly templating style. And because Lift applications are written in Scala, an elegant new JVM language, you can still use your favorite Java libraries and deploy to your favorite Servlet Container. Use the code you've already written and deploy to the container you've already configured!

sbt is a simple build tool for Scala projects that aims to do the basics well. It requires Java 1.5 or later.
