Akka in Action

Akka in Action by Raymond Roestenburg. Akka is a Scala-based toolkit that simplifies developing concurrent distributed applications. Akka uses Actors-independently executing processes that communicate via message passing—as the foundation for fault-tolerant applications where individual actors can fail without crashing everything.

Perfect for high-volume applications that need to wction rapidly, Akka is an effic Akka is a Scala-based toolkit that simplifies developing concurrent distributed applications.

Perfect for high-volume applications that need to scale rapidly, Akka is an efficient foundation for event-driven systems that want to scale elastically up and out on demand, both on multi-core processors and across server nodes. Akka in Action is a comprehensive tutorial on building message-oriented systems using Akka.

The book takes a hands-on approach, where each new concept is followed by an example that shows you sction it works, how to implement the code, and how to unit test it.

You’ll learn to test and deploy an actor system and scale it up and out, showing off Akka’s fault tolerance. As you move along, you’ll explore a message-oriented event-driven application in Akka. You’ll also tackle key issues like how to model immutable messages and domain models, and axtion patterns like Event Sourcing, and CQRS.

Mea book concludes with practical advice on how to tune and customize a system built with Akka. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. To ask other readers questions about Akka in Actionplease sign up.

Akka in Action MEAP v13

Lists with This Book. Feb 21, Sebastian Gebski rated it really liked it. Anyway, I felt a bit odd when reading this book: I had a bit similar feeling with “Scala in Action” some time ago, but it worked our very positively, so maybe I’m a bit oversensitive here too. Oct 04, Michael Koltsov rated it really liked it. By no means this book covers all the aspects of Akka which is enormously huge, albeit allows you to write full fledged applications based only on cation. The book has been recently updated to reflect the latest changes in http, persistence and some other modules.


Taking into account how quickly does akka keep its pace I would say that after actionn while without constant updates which took this book 4 years to get finished this book could adtion outdated. It has the bulk of the info you need to know about Akka to start working with wction and get productive. Jan 25, Pawel Dolega rated it it akkka amazing Shelves: In short this is very good book about Akka technology.

It’s easily readable, not too long and basically allows you to catch up with Akka without any prior experience with it. Book basically goes through most of Akka more interesting features and plugins including clustering, persistence etc. Most notable omission is probably Akka Typed and Akka Streams.

Dec 7: Akka in Action

Skipping former one Akka Neap may actually be reasonable as it’s at experimental stage. I had no problems with following concepts described in the book. It seems to start from basic concepts and later kinda build on top of them. Samples are clear and sensible. Provided pieces of code are great help. Perhaps the best part of the book is it’s focus on testing – both unit testing and integration testing, including even things like multi JVM tests and testing clusters in your tests.

This emap really a powerful aspect of the book.

To sum things up: It will give you general understanding of concepts and practical usage of Akka. You won’t learn much new stuff here. Nov 04, Venkatesh-Prasad rated it really liked it. A good book to learn about Akka and the actor model. It covers how to realize basic actor model in Akka along with important extensions such as futures, agents, FSM, remoting, clustering, and persistence. Ak,a provides a good introduction to fault tolerance in the context kaka actor model It could have been a great book if 1 it used simple and precise language e.

Both these jn will A good actuon to learn about Akka and the actor model. Both these errors will slow down reading and comprehension; specifically, for folks who are not well-versed with Scala. To be fair, the book does say reader should know some Scala. However, I think the book would have been more accessible to non-Scala devs e.

Also, all of the code bits are not in the book. While this is generally fine, I felt that some important code bits were missing and this slowed down reading and comprehension. Clearly, a book to pick up Akka and scratch the surface of distributed computing. Aug 02, Bogdan rated it it was amazing.


I like the book and it can be used as a good start in learning akka. It has a lot of recipes, patterns, use cases that will help understand the power of akka. Considering the fact that akka is so huge akia with well structured and self-sufficient documentation, I didn’t know what to start with.

The book helped me. Dec 09, Frank Palardy rated it really liked it Shelves: Good info but weirdly organized. Some weak difficult chapters up front. Could be shorter or focus on akka first. Dec 09, Dmitry rated it really liked it.

Book covers multiple Akka’s domain, even quite exotic, never seen used by me, but this book rather a documentation than user guide, since it doesnt give a full picture how these doamins should be conbined together into proper Akka application, book gives a description of a set not connected topics.
