Chatting Through JActor

Abstract : Nearly 40 years ago Carl Hewitt, Peter Bishop and Richard Steiger introduced the actor model. Since then it has been built in some languages (such as Scala, Erlang, etc.) and has been implemented by several frameworks. One (of not so many) Java actor frameworks is the JActor framework – “a high-throughput Java Actor framework” (as described by its author Bill la Forge). In this post we are going to take a (brief) look at JActor framework by building a simple backbone for chatting (j)actors.

Goal : Build a simple chat application using JActor framework

Acknowledgement: My gratitude goes to the open source community and especially to:

Bill la Forge creator of JActor framework
