Akka in Action

Sample Chapters

By Raymond Roestenburg, Rob Bakker, and Rob Williams

Akka in Action shows you how to build message-oriented systems with Akka. This comprehensive, hands-on tutorial introduces each concept with a working example. You’ll start with the big picture of how Akka works, and then quickly build and deploy a fully functional REST service out of actors. You’ll explore test-driven development and deploying and scaling fault-tolerant systems. After mastering the basics, you’ll discover how to model immutable messages, implement domain models, and apply techniques like event sourcing and CQRS. You’ll also find a tutorial on building streaming applications using akka-stream and akka-http. Finally, you’ll get practical advice on how to customize and extend your Akka system.
