select

public Routee select(java.lang.Object message,
                     scala.collection.immutable.IndexedSeq<Routee> routees)
Description copied from interface: RoutingLogic
Pick the destination for a given message. Normally it picks one of the passed routees, but in the end it is up to the implementation to return whatever Routee to use for sending a specific message.

When implemented from Java it can be good to know that routees.apply(index) can be used to get an element from the IndexedSeq.

Specified by:
select in interface RoutingLogic

isTerminated

protected boolean isTerminated(Routee a)

isProcessingMessage

protected boolean isProcessingMessage(Routee a)
Returns true if the actor is currently processing a message. It will always return false for remote actors. Method is exposed to subclasses to be able to implement custom routers based on mailbox and actor internal state.


hasMessages

protected boolean hasMessages(Routee a)
Returns true if the actor currently has any pending messages in the mailbox, i.e. the mailbox is not empty. It will always return false for remote actors. Method is exposed to subclasses to be able to implement custom routers based on mailbox and actor internal state.


isSuspended

protected boolean isSuspended(Routee a)
Returns true if the actor is currently suspended. It will always return false for remote actors. Method is exposed to subclasses to be able to implement custom routers based on mailbox and actor internal state.


numberOfMessages

protected int numberOfMessages(Routee a)
Returns the number of pending messages in the mailbox of the actor. It will always return 0 for remote actors. Method is exposed to subclasses to be able to implement custom routers based on mailbox and actor internal state.
