akka-zk

Reactive akka ZooKeeper client.

What's in it:

  • all the features of the ZooKeeper client 3.4.9 (ACL, authentication, whatnot...)
  • persistent watches
  • watches emitted with Reactive Streams, can be consumed with akka-stream
  • fully async (almost, heh: with an exception of recursive delete children collection)
  • metrics
  • plenty of unit tests

Usage

Dependencies

libraryDependencies ++= Seq(
  "uk.co.appministry" %% "akka-zk" % "0.1.0"
)

Examples

Creating the client

val actorSystem = ActorSystem("examples")
val zkClient = system.actorOf(Props(new ZkClientActor))

Client configuration

The client does not have any special configuration needs. All configuration is passed with ZkRequestProtocol.Connect message.

Connecting

val system = ActorSystem("examples")
 
val runner = system.actorOf(Props(new Actor {
  
  val zkClient = context.system.actorOf(Props(new ZkClientActor))
  context.watch(zkClient)
  
  override def supervisorStrategy = OneForOneStrategy() {
    case _: ZkClientConnectionFailedException =>
      // ZooKeeper client was unable to connect to the server for `connectionAttempts` times.
      // The client is stopped and a new actor has to be created.
      Escalate
  }
  
  def receive = {
    case "connect" =>
      zkClient ! ZkRequestProtocol.Connect(connectionString = "10.100.0.21:2181",
                                           connectionAttempts = 5,
                                           sessionTimeout = 30 seconds)
    case ZkResponseProtocol.Connected(request, reactiveStreamsPublisher) =>
      // zkClient is now ready for work
  }
  
}))
runner ! "connect"

Subscribing to and unsubscribing from data / children changes

The akka-zk ZooKeeper client uses reactive streams for delivering watch notifications.

ZooKeeper client emits three types of events related to ZooKeeper state changes:

  • ZkClientStreamingResponse.StateChange(event: WatchedEventMeta): this is a client connection state change event
  • ZkClientStreamingResponse.ChildChange(event: WatchedEventMeta): this is a znode children change event
  • ZkClientStreamingResponse.DataChange(event: WatchedEventMeta): this is a znode data change event

The StateChange events are automatically delivered, there is no subscription required. However, the ChildChange and DataChange events are per path thus requiring an explicit subscription. To initialize a subscription:

val system = ActorSystem("examples")
 
val runner = system.actorOf(Props(new Actor {
  
  implicit val materializer = ActorMaterializer(
    ActorMaterializerSettings(system).withInputBuffer(
      initialSize = 10,
      maxSize = 64))
  
  val zkClient = context.system.actorOf(Props(new ZkClientActor))
  
  def receive = {
    case "connect" =>
      zkClient ! ZkRequestProtocol.Connect(connectionString = "10.100.0.21:2181",
                                           connectionAttempts = 5,
                                           sessionTimeout = 30 seconds)
    case ZkResponseProtocol.Connected(request, publisher) =>
      
      // a very simple example:
      Source.fromPublisher[ZkClientStreamProtocol.StreamResponse](publisher).map { message =>
        message match {
          case m: ZkClientStreamProtocol.ChildChange => // children change event
          case m: ZkClientStreamProtocol.DataChange  => // data change event
          case m: ZkClientStreamProtocol.StateChange => // state change event
        }
      }.runWith(Sink.ignore)
      
      self ! "subscribe"
      
    case "subscribe" =>
      zkClient ! ZkRequestProtocol.SubscribeChildChanges("/some/zookeeper/path")
      zkClient ! ZkRequestProtocol.SubscribeDataChanges("/some/other/zookeeper/path")
    case ZkResponseProtocol.SubscriptionSuccess(request) =>
      request match {
        case _: ZkRequestProtocol.SubscribeChildChanges =>
          // from now on, the child changes for the requested path will be streaming via the Source
        case _: ZkRequestProtocol.SubscribeDataChanges =>
          // from now on, the data changes for the requested path will be streaming via the Source
      }
    case "unsubscribe" =>
      zkClient ! ZkRequestProtocol.UnsubscribeChildChanges("/some/zookeeper/path")
      zkClient ! ZkRequestProtocol.UnsubscribeDataChanges("/some/other/zookeeper/path")
    case ZkResponseProtocol.UnsubscriptionSuccess(request) =>
      request match {
        case _: ZkRequestProtocol.UnsubscribeChildChanges =>
          // child change for the requested path will stop streaming via the Flow
        case _: ZkRequestProtocol.UnsubscribeDataChanges =>
          // data change for the requested path will stop streaming via the Flow
      }
  }
}))

runner ! "connect"

Handling underlying ZooKeeper errors

Any operation that failed will be wrapped in and returned as ZkResponseProtocol.OperationError(originalRequest, cause). An example:

  def receive = {
    case "create-node" =>
      zkClient ! ZkRequestProtocol.CreatePersistent("/some/zookeeper/path/for/which/the/parent/does/not/exist")
    case ZkResponseProtocol.OperationError(request, cause) =>
      request match {
        case r: ZkRequestProtocol.CreatePersistent =>
          log.error(s"Failed to create znode: ${r.path}. Reason: $cause.")
        case _ =>
      }
  }
