Description: Akka is an open source solution facilitating the construction of concurrent, distributed, and fault-tolerant event-driven applications on the Java platform. This technology provides scalable real-time transaction processing. Akka can be integrated into a build without having to follow a particular source code layout. This solution supplies a wide array of concurrency-paradigms and may be useful when message passing between actors and building expandable, volatile and distributed applications.

Akka operates with either Java or Scala. This entry covers only the Java edition since the Scala capabilities require the Scala programming lanugage, which is not on the TRM.

Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations.
