Alpakka – Connecting Kafka and ElasticSearch to Akka streams

In our previous blog, we had a look at what Akka streams are and how they are different from the other streaming mechanisms we have. In this blog, we will be taking a little step forward into the world of Akka Streams. In order to work with Akka streams, we need a mechanism to connect Akka Streams to the existing system components. That is where Alpakka Continue Reading

Stream a file to AWS S3 using Akka Streams (via Alpakka) in Play Framework

In this blog post we’ll see how a file can be streamed from a client (eg: browser) to Amazon S3 (AWS S3) using Alpakka’s AWS S3 connector. Aplakka provides various Akka Stream connectors, integration patterns and data transformations for integration use cases. The example in this blog post uses Play Framework to provide a user interface to submit a file from a web page directly to Continue Reading
