Relational Databases and Scala - Comparing Libraries

RDBMs might no longer be the only storage option, but they aren't going anywhere. Which library to access them suits you best? Find out during this live-coding session!

We’ll look at four of the most popular relational database access libraries in Scala: Slick, Doobie, Quill and Scalikejdbc. We’ll compare them in terms of necessary meta-data mapping, query capabilities and transaction support. We’ll also discuss how they support asynchronous I/O and streaming results sets.

There won’t be any slides, just code so that you can see for yourself how much typing is necessary to get them to work.
