Reactive Messaging Patterns with the Actor Model: Applications and Integration in Scala and Akka

Reactive Messaging Patterns with the Actor Model

Use Actor Model to Build Simpler Systems with Better Performance and Scalability
Reflecting his own cutting-edge work, veteran software engineer Vaughn Vernon shows architects and developers how to translate the longtime promises of Actor model into practical reality. First, he introduces the tenets of reactive software, and shows how the message-driven Actor model addresses all of them–making it possible to build systems that are more responsive, resilient, and elastic. Next, he presents a practical Scala bootstrap tutorial, a thorough introduction to Akka and Akka Cluster, and a full chapter on maximizing performance and scalability with Scala and Akka.
