Subject Re: Akka with Spark
Date Sun, 27 Dec 2015 03:01:21 GMT
Note that Akka is being removed from Spark. Even if it weren't, I would
consider keeping Akka processes separate from Spark processes, so you can
monitor, debug, and scale them independently. So consider streaming data
from Akka to Spark Streaming or go the other way, from Spark to Akka
