This presentation gives a demo of how to quickly create a web application with Ratpack.
Ratpack is yet another kid on the block of web application development frameworks. Why is it different? It gives you the ability to rapidly prototype web Uis and APIs. Non-blocking implementation, which includes testing, dependency injection, monitoring and streaming are all (as well as many others) built-in features and are easy to use. You can start as small as a single script, or split your application into several source code files organically when it grows bigger. The conciseness of Ratpack's Groovy DSL and its elegant API gives Ratpack an outstanding charm that's worth a try for your next small or big project.
