Akka – very cool for distributed, concurrent systems in Java

Sub-paragraphing from their website.

Akka is the platform for the next generation event-driven, scalable and fault-tolerant architectures on the JVM

We believe that writing correct concurrent, fault-tolerant and scalable applications is too hard. Most of the time it’s because we are using the wrong tools and the wrong level of abstraction.

Akka is here to change that…

It has a Java and Scala API.

Thanks to Matthew Pocock for bringing it to my attention!
