About the Build Tools category

Play is a series of libraries available in Maven Repository, so you can use any Java build tool to build a Play project. However, much of the development experience Play is known for (routes, templates compilation and auto-reloading) is provided by sbt or Gradle.

There is also play2-maven-plugin which is not officially maintained by Play team, but that could be good alternative to users more used to Maven.

In this category, you can discuss anything related to Play and these tools: how to configure them, possible issues you are having, etc.
