By now, six months after launch, we’ve made some serious improvements to the API’s scalability and availability using Akka’s rich toolset for concurrent programming. Though Akka is mostly famous for its implementation of the Actor Model, I’m going to talk about two other Akka features, Futures and Agents.
Disruptive forces hit the programming industry with rare frequency. Perhaps the biggest to hit enterprise Java was Rod Johnson and the Spring framework. But will Scala, Play and Akka be the industry's next big disruptive force?
So what is Akka? It's an Actor framework for the JVM that is implemented in Scala but that is something that you rarely notice when working from Java. It offers a nice Java API that provides most of the functionality in a convenient way.
Typesafe, a company that makes it easy to build and deploy software built on the Scala software language, has raised $14 million in Series B funding led by Shasta Ventures with Juniper Networks (the Junos Innovation Fund), Greylock Partners and...
If you have an experience in data extraction systems, you know how hard it could be to develop. You need to implement workers then combine them in error-prone, scalable and flexible system. Sounds like a lot of pain, isn’t it? But with modern painkillers the job could be done much simpler. I mean Akka. ... In less than 100 lines of code we got fully scalable recurrent data extraction example with simple logging and error handling. And as Akka is a close friend of Play 2.x framework, to say more preciously, Play includes Akka, it's easy to build Web Application on top of our system.
Dear hAkkers, We—the Akka committers—are pleased to be able to announce the availability of Akka 2.1.0 ‘Mingus’. We are proud to include the work of 17 external committers, plus the work done by our...
