Where do the dependencies javaWs, javaJpa, etc. come from? in the Play / Java application?


I am starting a new project in Play Framework with Java. I checked the build.sbt file and couldn't understand where the dependencies names came from?

libraryDependencies ++= Seq(

Where did these names like javaWs, javaJpa, etc. com from? How to check the version of these libraries?

The dependencies listed in this example are the ones that are shipped with your installation of play. The versions match the Play framework version you are using.

Play framework is modular so you don't have to use all of its modules in your application. That is why you must specify which modules you want.
