Jamie Allen reviews some of the actor patterns as implemented in Akka and Scala.
Jamie Allen describes three patterns using Akka actors: handling a lack of guaranteed delivery, distributing tasks to worker actors and implementing distributed workers in an Akka cluster.
Joshua Suereth designs a scalable distributed search service with Akka and Scala using actors, and covering practical aspects of how to scale out with Akka’s clustering API.
Josh Suereth designs a distributed search service with Akka using Actors, covering: message passing, designing topologies, handling failure, service overload detection and tracking user sessions.
Jan Machacek introduces writing Scala applications to Spring developers, demoing using Akka actors with mix-in composition, higher-order functions, higher-order kinds, and REST API.
Jonas Bonér explains solving scalability issues, including adaptive automatic load-balancing, cluster rebalancing, replication and partitioning, with Akka 2.
Josh Suereth presents the new features available in Akka 2.0: clustered actors, including stateless and stateful ones, replication and the Cluster API.
Jonas Bonér introduces Akka, a JVM platform that wants to address the complex problems of concurrency, scalability and fault tolerance using Actors, STM and self-healing from crashes.
