Using the Akka Actor Framework from JRuby
These 3 examples demonstrate how to use the Akka actor framework from JRuby.
- Spawning a simple actor and sending it messages
- Spawning several thread based actors and fetching urls
- Spawning actors that will consume messages from a rabbitmq server and fetch urls
To run the last example you must have a local rabbitmq server running. Use the enqueue-urls.rb script to send messages to the actors.
