Applications packaged this way are zipped standalone distributions without any need to have Play framework installed on the machine that it’s supposed to run on.

While the built in router is enough for most users, sometimes you may encounter use cases where it’s not enough. Or, maybe you want a more convenient way to implement some routing pattern.
