AKKA ask pattern: For those times when you have to block

Abstract : Since you are here, chances are, you are in one of those situations where you have to come up with a blocking solution using AKKA. Thus I’m going to skip the actor model introduction which is necessary to understand how AKKA actor model implementation works (you can read more about the actor model on the AKKA docs website). In this post you will find out how you can take advantage of AKKA’s ask pattern to do blocking when necessary.

Goal : Develop a “fire-and-await-confirmation” system based on AKKA ask pattern

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

Jonas Bonér (@jboner) for the creation of AKKA

Viktor Klang (@viktorklang) for his attention to the details

Maxime Nowak (@maximenowak) for his eye-opening discussions and “religious” clean-coding

Code : You can download the full source of the project from GitHub
