Programming the Cloud with Actors: Inside ActorFx

Programming the Cloud with Actors: Inside ActorFx

The goal for ActorFx is to provide a non-prescriptive, language-independent model of dynamic distributed objects. This will in turn provide a framework and infrastructure on top of which highly available data structures and other logical entities can be implemented.

ActorFx (aka Ax) is based on the idea of the Actor Model developed by Carl Hewitt. Erik Meijer figured this model would fit perfectly into the realm of managing data in the cloud.
