Scala is a general purpose programming language that runs on the JVM. It is designed to express common programming patterns in a concise, elegant, and type-safe way. It smoothly integrates features of object-oriented and functional languages, enabling Java programmers to be more productive. Code sizes are typically reduced by a factor of two to three when compared to an equivalent Java application
