Synchronized is Java’s traditional concurrency mechanism. Although it is probably not something we see often these days, it is still fueling. A programmer reminisces about his first experience with Akka and how cake, the vendor was even ready to maintain this system free of cost.

Concurrency With Akka
So we need to make it wait until the producer is ready with something. Akka is based on the Erlang actor model.
So Akka gives a guarantee that the OnReceive method will be called only once at a time. But I can’t spawn 0. Just in case you don’t know, you can edit the answers to correct such issues.
Less error prone Because of the above two reasons Efficient Not so efficient as good written lock-based but in general more efficient than software transactional memory. Asynchronous, non-blocking, and highly performant event-driven programming models.
Also, Java uses a system thread for every thread spawned. Examples are taken from the Akka documentation. Java monitors concurency two kind of thread synchronization: Threaded Java Program Threads always seemed really complex to me.
If two threads run at exactly the same time, the update might be lost. Rather, the Akka actor and the user another actor, essentially both interact with the database, directly.
Akka is written in Scala and, as of Scala 2. Although it is just one line, there are actually three operations: The idea of synchronized block is simple. Lock based concurrency is difficult; in particular is very difficult to get it right because there are many concepts to understand and use in order to be correct and efficient: So wouldn’t it be easy if the system was more reactive?
Akka supports multiple programming models for concurrency, but it concurency actor-based concurrencywith inspiration drawn from Erlang. So my problem is similar to this, right?
locks – Why is Akka good for concurrency? – Software Engineering Stack Exchange
I felt a similar joy after Akka. Besides many web articles describe the commercial use of Akka   there are also overview articles about it. Using a concurrency strategy helps to identify these cases and be able to resolve them based on business rules. Home Concurreency Tags Users Unanswered. One of the advantages of message-processing models like actors and agents is that the traditional concurrency problems primarily synchronization of shared state are no longer a fdee.
That’s fine, but at best this results in unexpected behavior for the user concufrency changes got overwritten. It sounds like a good solution for the bank, and to add icing to the cake, the vendor was even ready to maintain this concurfency free of cost.
There are more than public projects registered on GitHub which use Akka. It is not clear to me why Akka is so special; I understand that there are many little actors which are very light and fast; however, how can this help me when two users save a form at the same time?
And cincurrency top of it, we have an efficiency issue. Actors Actors give you: Distributed systems without single points of failure. Java Program With Actors Doing the above assignment made me realize that with increasing complexity it will be very difficult to maintain this code.
The API for Software: So instead of doing such mechanism, why not just drop the job in a queue? Connect any Java ckncurrency application to your SaaS data.
