Supervision revisited

This lecture discusses how supervision in Akka Typed differs from the previously discussed supervision implemented in untyped Akka actors:

  • no more paused actors
  • no private state leaks by potentially non-serializable exception objects
  • failure-stop model as foreseen by the Actor Model

The interesting part is that supervision is implemented as a purely functional behavior decorator, show-casing how libraries can add powerful capabilities to the Akka Typed system.
