Lagom heavily relies on the Scala build tool (also known as sbt) as the primary tool to install, create, build, configure, and run Lagom projects. While it is possible to use other build tools to do that, we will stick to sbt during this and the following recipes. In this recipe, we will look at how to create a Lagom project from scratch using the provided
hello-world project. This project brings in two sample modules that use Kafka and Cassandra behind the scenes to manage the persistence layer.
Once we have our Hello-world sample project, we will extend it adding a new endpoint in one of the modules, and finally, we will use sbt to run all microservices. Afterward, we will use the
curl command to access all our modules through REST calls.
