I was looking at a similar question. I’m using Play 2.0.3 and it still doesn’t work.
Any clue why ?
I’m following this tutorial – http://www.playframework.com/documentation/2.1.0/JavaGuide2
The tutorial is a work in progress, and is based on Play 2.1, which is not yet released. You’ll have to download and build Play 2.1 yourself if you want to use it.
