Above the Clouds: Introducing Akka
Jonas Bonér introduces Akka, a JVM platform that wants to address the complex problems of concurrency, scalability and fault tolerance using Actors, STM and self-healing from crashes.

Akka: Simpler Scalability, Fault-Tolerance, Concurrency & Remoting through Actors
Akka is the platform for the next generation event-driven, scalable and fault-tolerant architectures on the JVM

Task Dispatch and Nonblocking IO in Scala

spray is a suite of lightweight Scala libraries for building and consuming RESTful web services on top of Akka.
Completely asynchronous, non-blocking, actor-based request and response processing for efficiently handling very high numbers of concurrent connections
Immutable model of the HTTP protocol, decoupled from the underlying web server / servlet container
Full testability of your REST services, without the need to fire up containers or actors

Actor References, Paths and Addresses

Actor Systems
Actors are objects which encapsulate state and behavior, they communicate exclusively by exchanging messages which are placed into the recipient’s mailbox.

Supervision and Monitoring
As described in Actor Systems supervision describes a dependency relationship between actors: the supervisor delegates tasks to subordinates and therefore must respond to their failures.
