And this week also saw the release of DZone's 201st Refcard: Reactive Programming with Akka

Reactive Programming with Akka

By Ryan Knight

Akka is a framework for Java and Scala that implements the Actor model of computation. The Actor model is ideal for concurrency and fault-tolerance, especially on heterogeneous and flexibly governed systems. This Refcard covers:

  • Defining and creating actors and messages
  • Actor hierarchies
  • fault-tolerance and self-healing
  • And much more!
