Book Description

For a programmer, writing multi-threaded applications is critical as it is important to break large tasks into smaller ones and run them simultaneously. Akka is a distributed computing toolkit that uses the abstraction of the Actor model, enabling developers to build correct, concurrent, and distributed applications using Java and Scala with ease.

The book begins with a quick introduction that simplifies concurrent programming with actors. We then proceed to master all aspects of domain-driven design. We’ll teach you how to scale out with Akka remoting/clustering. Finally, we introduce Conductr as a means to deploy to and manage microservices across a cluster.

What You Will Learn

  • Use Akka actors to enable parallel execution
  • Build out domain-driven design based components like entities and aggregates
  • Respond to command requests on that aggregate root that affect the internal state
  • Leverage Akka Persistence, protobuf and Cassandra to save the persistent state of you entities
  • Build out complex processing graphs with the Graph Builder DSL
  • Understand the dynamic push/pull nature of backpressure handling within Akka Streams
  • Route HTTP requests to an actor and return a response
  • Deploy actor instances across a set of nodes via ConductR for high availability
