For this recipe, we will explore how Play Framework allows us to create asynchronous controllers using futures, in conjunction with Akka actors. The ability to create asynchronous controllers provides a way for developers to trigger background jobs and execute long-running operations asynchronously without sacrificing endpoint responsiveness.

For Java, we need to take the following steps:
