Software Development using development company/ Refactoring of integration code
RIGA, Latvia - July 22, 2019 - PRLog -- Development using

We have been working with AKKA Services in production for more than 14 months. Because of the size of the system, we realized we needed an additional distributed computing environment to improve system scalability, fault tolerance and concurrency. For the specific project we were working on, we had to ensure the secure and efficient operation of all ERP users in automating the financial and business flows of an organization that serves a city of approximately 100,000 people.


As a software development company, we usually outsource to third-party consultants to help with technologies where we do not have enough of experience, but in this case, we decided to use our own skills and integrate our existing code base with AKKA Services. Of course, we had to resolve many problems ourselves, but sometimes it is an even better way to understand how does framework work from inside. Here's what we had:


• Web system
• AKKA .net services as a separate instance

The first issues we encountered were an unstable connection between the web server and AKKA Services, uncomprehensive and hard trackable monitoring of task completion status and logging of the exceptions. To resolve that, we had to invent some workarounds. We added listeners to connection-lost events, trying to detect if the actor was alive or not. If it wasn't, we added pulling to try to get the connection. We used SignalR-based flags to the code in order to do so.
