Writing really concurrent software program at the Java digital computer simply acquired lots more uncomplicated. The Akka Toolkit takes the edge out of coding for a number of cores, a number of processors, or even a number of machines. Akka Concurrency will convey you what it capacity to layout and write software program within the paradigm of Akka. you are going to methods to take into consideration your software program in new and intriguing ways in which will let you exhibit your designs clearly, permitting you to target the company of your software program greater than at the concurrency of it. This publication choices up the place the Akka documentation leaves off, exploring the how and the why of Akka, in a fashion that may empower you to develop your functions to new degrees of scalability, responsiveness, and function.

Parallele Programmierung

Durch kostengünstige Multiprozessor-Desktoprechner, Cluster von desktops und Innovationen wie die Hyperthreading-Technologie oder Multicore-Prozessoren sind parallele Rechenressourcen allgegenwärtig. Die effiziente Ausnutzung dieser parallelen Rechenleistung ist jedoch nur durch den Einsatz paralleler Programmiertechniken möglich, die sich damit in alle Bereiche der Softwareerstellung ausbreiten.

C++ at least can have simple verbs (good ol’ functions) that we can pass around if needed. This is why we have so many blocking calls in our code today—doing anything else is just too damn hard. Download from Wow! js3 came on the scene with a single-threaded solution to our blocking call problem. js’s bread and butter is the idea that if all IO is asynchronous, then code in user-land is free to execute and react to IO events. Your user-level code is on a single thread so you don’t need any synchronization primitives to protect its data, and with the help of Java Script’s closure mechanisms, we get the tools we need to write a ton of nonblocking code (albeit, heavily nested at times).

Any toolkit that claims to provide a new concurrency development paradigm must provide a way to protect these precious resources. Akka doesn’t disappoint, and you’ll become quite competent in ensuring that your threads are working their butts off. Download from Wow! 5 So, why Akka? ” but that’s probably not fair. Akka exists to wrestle concurrency to the ground. It solves the problem of designing, coding and reasoning about concurrent applications by bringing you a toolkit full of powerful abstractions on the JVM.

Some people seem to think that threads are cheap. They’re really not. 2 Some concurrency frameworks of the past even thought it was reasonable to spin up a new thread for every incoming network request. The rule of thumb with those was to make sure your app didn’t get too many incoming network requests. That’s pretty silly. I’ve also seen people make their apps go “faster” by spinning up multiple threads to do some work in parallel and then kill them when it’s time to stop them. If there are 200 incoming requests, they’ll happily spin up 10,000 threads to do their work for them, and this can happen on-and-off every couple of seconds!
