PersistentActor minimal example

Overview

You can find the code and instruction to run the example at GitHub.

receiveCommand

  override def receiveCommand: Receive = {
    case Command(i) ⇒
      persist(Event(i)) { event ⇒
        sum += i
      }
  }

Persistence actor receives a Command and generate an Event, then persist the Event via Journal. The receiveCommand method of PersistentActor does that.

receiveRecover

  override def receiveRecover: Receive = {
    case Event(i) ⇒
      sum += i
  }

receiveRecover is called upon restarting a PersistentActor after exception was thrown.
