In this chapter, we saw and learned the following:

  • How to set up the development environment for Java/Scala
  • How to write and create actors—state and behavior
  • How to pass the messages across actors
  • How to create and execute ActorSystem and run the actors within ActorSystem
  • How to model and create a Word Count Map Reduce application using the Akka actors

This provided a summary of the Actor Model and some of the runtime constructs. In the coming chapter, we will discuss actors further, and see the features and functionality provided by them.
