Scala: Stand Alone Java Web App?

view full story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi. I'm interested in Scala, because I have an FP bent, and because I read that it compiles to Java byte code. I am wondering, then: Can I use Scala to make stand alone Java Web applications? For example, a few years ago I made a little graphical puzzle game that runs in the browser. Can I do the same sort of thing with Scala? (HowTos)
