I’ve just discovered the Ninja Web Framework. This one isn’t “yet another framework”, it’s actually heavily based on the very popular Play Framework ideas. It seems to provide a substitute for the latter, since Zenexity andTypesafe have formed an alliance to further support Play primarily in the Scala ecosystem. Some people may feel that this makes the Play+Java combination a second-class citizen. The Ninja Web Framework is maintained by a Berlin-based company calledFinalFrontierLabs, who were great fans of Play when they were using it in Java. You have to love their company profile:

As some people seem to have regretted Play's focus on Scala, this framework is certainly one to keep an eye out for in the near future!
