tcp-async is an typesafe activator template which handles tcp requests reactively.
When you reached to limits of your synchronous application, you will start to look for an alternative way to expand your request handling capacity. That's where reactive programming will shine.
Handling 10K Requests is not a trivial goal. And reaching to those numbers may cost a lot with standart programming architectures.
tcp-async shows how to implement a simple and functional reactive application in scala.
