Class ClusterReceptionist

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Actor, ActorLogging

    public final class ClusterReceptionist
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements Actor, ActorLogging
    Deprecated.
    Use Akka gRPC instead, see https://doc.akka.io/docs/akka/2.6/cluster-client.html#migration-to-akka-grpc. Since 2.6.0.
    ClusterClient connects to this actor to retrieve. The ClusterReceptionist is supposed to be started on all nodes, or all nodes with specified role, in the cluster. The receptionist can be started with the ClusterClientReceptionist or as an ordinary actor (use the factory method props(akka.actor.ActorRef, akka.cluster.client.ClusterReceptionistSettings)).

    The receptionist forwards messages from the client to the associated DistributedPubSubMediator, i.e. the client can send messages to any actor in the cluster that is registered in the DistributedPubSubMediator. Messages from the client are wrapped in DistributedPubSubMediator.Send, DistributedPubSubMediator.SendToAll or DistributedPubSubMediator.Publish with the semantics described in DistributedPubSubMediator.

    Response messages from the destination actor are tunneled via the receptionist to avoid inbound connections from other cluster nodes to the client, i.e. the sender(), as seen by the destination actor, is not the client itself. The sender() of the response messages, as seen by the client, is deadLetters since the client should normally send subsequent messages via the ClusterClient. It is possible to pass the original sender inside the reply messages if the client is supposed to communicate directly to the actor in the cluster.

      • context

        public ActorContext context()
        Deprecated.
        Description copied from interface: Actor
        Scala API: Stores the context for this actor, including self, and sender. It is implicit to support operations such as forward.

        WARNING: Only valid within the Actor itself, so do not close over it and publish it to other threads!

        ActorContext is the Scala API. getContext returns a AbstractActor.ActorContext, which is the Java API of the actor context.

        Specified by:
        context in interface Actor
        Returns:
        (undocumented)
      • self

        public final ActorRef self()
        Deprecated.
        Description copied from interface: Actor
        The 'self' field holds the ActorRef for this actor.

        Can be used to send messages to itself:
         self ! message
         
        Specified by:
