Using Akka and Scala for CQRS and Event Sourcing

In the past, we covered using Lagom to implement Java microservices using the event sourcing and CQRS patterns that framework relies on. Today, we’ll be revisiting our blog microservice example using the Scala programming language and Akka, one of the main components underlying Lagom. Event Sourcing First, let’s take a quick review of what event

Reactive Microservices in Java Using the Lagom Framework

Microservice architecture is amongst the latest in best practices in software architecture. Essentially, microservices are small, independent applications that provide REST APIs for communication. These applications are akin to the Unix philosophy of small programs: each program does one thing and does it well. Each application should work on its own and be independently deployable,
