Akka for Java Devs: Bridging the Imagination Divide Today's applications are expected to support a multitude of devices, employ hybrid cloud deployments, persist petabytes of data, deliver millisecond response time and have near-perfect reliability. Traditional patterns and practices for enterprise Java application development simply can't support these demands, or are so complicated that entire systems can be brought down by single points of failure. Developers need new tools to help bridge existing infrastructure with changing models. For many, trying to operate in these distributed environments is simply unimaginable. Which is why Akka, a toolkit and runtime for building highly concurrent, distributed, and fault tolerant systems, has been a game changer for Java devs. Akka decouples business logic from low-level mechanisms such as threads, locks and non-blocking I/O, and liberates devs from the hariest challenges of managing the state and location of services.
