I have gone though multiple posts where they have explained about what is implicit in scala, but still I am confuse what is it and why we make Play request implicit in some case like below and where?
I have also seen that Scala heavily using implicit as in API, and heavily using implicit conversion. I just want to know how scala compiler use implicit, handle implicit argument not passing value, how compiler will work on implicit conversion and all.
I am not an expert but all I can say in layman language is ---
Using 'implicit' allows Scala apply its common sense.
implicit timeout = 12 seconds
// Whatever process/thread you run with this implicit timeout, the thread/process would timeout in 12 seconds even though you do not explicitly specify it. Hope I am not confusing you.
