  • Play

    The Community Maintained High Velocity Web Framework For Java and Scala.

  • However do note, Play should be perfectly usable as well, and it's still maintained by the community: https://github.com/playframework/playframework/issues/11649

  • msdemos

    Demostration of simple microservices written in Scala using various frameworks

  • You're not confined to the usual suggestions below (play, http4s). There's a ton of options. (I wrote test cases using a bunch of different frameworks a few years ago at https://github.com/hohonuuli/msdemos). Having written services using a variety of frameworks in production, I would strongly suggest using one that auto-generates API docs (openapi, swagger) for you. That will save you a huge amount of time later on. For heavier services, like the one at https://fathomnet.org/, I tend to the Java side (Quarkus is my current top choice, but Micronaut and Helidon are both great). For everything else I use Scala. My go-to right now is tapir using a vertx backend. See https://tapir.softwaremill.com/
