Hi Timothy,

The video you linked talk much about support/usage of the view. That's perhaps it's more view oriented. What kind of support is available for other back end development for things like asynchronous processing, transaction management etc...? Are there any other libraries available or Lift itself provide them.

Thanks,

Hi there,

What kind of asyc processing are you talking about? If you mean for general business process then you're better off using Akka for that. Lift is a web framework and not a huge amount more (it has other parts, but thats not the focus). For async processing, database handling and all the other types of tools you might want the scala eco-system does an excellent job of providing for those.

If however you meant asyncronus rendering, or parallel rendering of web views... then sure, Lift supports those really easily.

Tim
