Language bindings exist for both Java and Scala. At worst when we’re not just talking about form updates, but things like shipping orders it could result in losses of various kinds time, revenue, etc. No need to grasp and skka low-level concepts such as the memory barrier.
Disadvantages Not all languages easily enforce immutability; Erlang, the language that first popularized actors has immutability at its core but Java and Freee actually the JVM does not enforce immutability. One of the advantages of message-processing models like actors and agents is that the traditional concurrency problems primarily synchronization of shared state are no longer a problem.
