Code Combat II : The Code Battle For The Vanguard Continues…

“If you can dream it, you can do it. ”  -Walt Disney For some coding is a job. For some, it is an exercise. But for us folks here at Knoldus, it’s a Passion. So in order to bring a twist in the daily work schedule, Knoldus held an overnight Hackathon competition within the organization on 18th May 2018 which presented an opportunity for every Knolder(employees 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

Streaming data from PostgreSQL using Akka Streams and Slick in Play Framework

In this blog post I’ll try to explain the process wherein you can stream data directly from PostgreSQL database using Scala Slick (which is Scala’s database access/query library) and Akka Streams (which is an implementation of Reactive Streams specification on top of Akka toolkit) in Play Framework. The process is going to be pretty straightforward in terms of implementation where data is read from one Continue Reading

Akka Split Brain Resolver – Problem and its Solution

AKKA Split Brain Resolver When operating an Akka cluster the developer will surely comes around network partitions (Split Brain scenarios) and machine crashes. There are multiple strategies present by lightbend to handle such erratic behavior and, after a deeper explanation of the problem we are facing, I will try to present them along with their pros and cons using the Split Brain Resolver in Akka, Continue Reading

Cinnamon: Way For Monitoring & Metrics Generation for Akka ActorSystem

We are developing huge applications and deployed on multiple virtual machines and clusters. For monitoring applications, we need to enable logs into our application and analysis that logs with help of some tools like elastic stack. But !! what if we need to check health of application on virtual machines and clusters? For that, we are using several Metrics for system health check like Gauges, Continue Reading

Routing DSL in Akka HTTP

In this blog we’ll be discussing about the Routing DSl provided by Akka HTTP High level Server Side API. Akka HTTP provides a very flexible “Routing DSL” for elegantly defining RESTful web services. It picks up where the low-level API leaves off and offers much of the higher level functionality of typical web servers or frameworks, like deconstruction of URIs, content negotiation or static content serving. Continue Reading

Akka HTTP vs Other REST API Tools

Hi Folks ! Lately there have been a lot of tools that allow us to build rest APIs like the following : Akka Http Play Scalatra http4s Finch Spray In my blog today, I will be discussing Akka Http and its counterparts(competitors) in terms of their advantages, disadvantages, performance and use cases. Let us begin comparsion of Akka-Http with Scalatra. Scalatra is a thread based,it Continue Reading

Say Hello to “Akka-Http”

Hello folks, Hope you are enjoying your coding days!!! in this blog, I will explain a cool technology named Akka-Http which i have recently explored in my coding days!! Introduction The Akka HTTP implements a full server- and client-side HTTP stack on top of akka-actor and akka-stream. It’s not a web-framework but rather a more general toolkit for providing and consuming HTTP-based services. Akka.Http comes with Continue Reading

First interaction Artificial Neural Network

I hated biology in my school days and loved mathematics. After a long period of time I get to learn something which combines both mathematics and biology together, that is Artificial Neural Network short for ANN, inspired by biological Neural network. Though you might find it weird, that is how I would like to define the artificial neural network. When we say biology here, it Continue Reading

Solr With Scala : Basic Introduction to Embedded Solr

Hello Folks, As we discussed earlier Solr with Scala and AkkaHttp in our last blog we have used Solr as a service and tried to hit solr service with the AkkaHttp and spray routes. Here is the link for the Recap. When we want to do testing for those methods which are creating connection with the remote solr server, have to use Embedded Solr for Continue Reading
