SQL made easy and secure with Slick

Slick stands for Scala Language-Integrated Connection Kit. It is Functional Relational Mapping (FRM) library for Scala that makes it easy to work with relational databases. Slick can be considered as a replacement of writing SQL queries as Strings with a nicer API for handling connections, fetching results and using a query language, which is integrated more nicely into Scala. You can write your database queries Continue Reading

JWT Authentication with Play Framework

In this blog, I will demonstrate how to implement JWT Authentication with Play Framework. JSON Web Token (JWT) is a compact, self-contained which means securely transfer the information between two parties. It can be sent via Post request or inside the HTTP header. This information can be verified and trusted because it is digitally signed. JWTs can be signed using a secret or a public/private key Continue Reading

Configure SSL on jetty server to run it with https

We can run our application with http as well as with https. We use https for secure communication over the computer network. Technically, https is not a protocol in and of itself; rather, it is the result of simply layering the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) on top of the SSL/TLS protocol, thus adding the security capabilities of SSL/TLS to standard HTTP communications. In this blog, Continue Reading
