What you will learn from this book
- Learn to write truly object-oriented code, without ever resorting to static methods
- Use mixin inheritance to transcend the restrictions typically associated with hierarchical inheritance
- Fully understand mixin, composition, and classical inheritance, and when to apply each to solve your domain problem
- Develop modular reusable code and swap between a MySQL and a NoSQL storage engine with just one line of code
- Use the Option monad to avoid NullPointerException
- Be a type-system guru: know the difference between “covariance” and “contravariance”, “bottom type” and “unit type”, and when to use each one
- Detect and prove the non-existence of large classes of bugs without even needing to run your program
- Learn how to manually detect and fix the bugs in your JVM application, and how you can automatically sidestep them in Scala
Scala smoothly integrates object-oriented and functional programming. It is designed to express common programming patterns in a concise, elegant, and typesafe way. Pattern matching over class hierarchies uniﬁes functional and object-oriented data access, which greatly simpliﬁes the processing of XML trees.
This book uses your existing Java knowledge as a springboard to accelerate into the advanced topic of object-oriented design using Scala. You will develop applications using OOP principles and methods. This book allows the reader to go from a competent Java programmer, dipping his or her toe into Scala, to a full-fledged productive Scala programmer ready to employ Scala in a real working environment.
The book starts with the mechanics of the Scala language such as the “object” and “trait” keywords as building blocks to show the types of patterns that a fluent Scala programmer would regularly employ, such as companion-classes and mixin inheritance. This will make you comfortable with intermediate topics and will help you to move on to the advanced global view of object-oriented design such as the Liskov Subtitution Principle, modular design and design-by-contract, and how it can be applied in Scala programming.
Scala Object-Oriented Programming will enhance your knowledge from what you already know by working with Java, and so it is the fastest way for a Java programmer to master the Scala language.
This book is a practical, tutorial-style guide to implementing and deploying apps in Scala.
Who this book is for
Scala Object-Oriented Programming is for experienced Java programmers and beginner/ intermediate Scala programmers who want to become productive in Scala. This book uses your existing Java knowledge to jump-start you into being productive in Scala right away, and gradually introduces more and more advanced techniques that Scala makes available to you.
