Akka/Scala example source code file (TestUtils.scala)

This example Akka source code file (TestUtils.scala) is included in my "Source Code Warehouse" project. The intent of this project is to help you more easily find Akka and Scala source code examples by using tags.

All credit for the original source code belongs to; I'm just trying to make examples easier to find. (For my Scala work, see my Scala examples and tutorials.)

Akka tags/keywords

actorref, actorsystem, akka, boolean, collection, concurrent, duration, generalsocket, inetsocketaddress, int, socketaddress, string, test, testing, time, unit

The TestUtils.scala Akka example source code

package akka

import scala.collection.immutable
import scala.concurrent.duration.Duration
import{ SocketAddress, InetSocketAddress }
import java.nio.channels.{ DatagramChannel, ServerSocketChannel }
import{ ActorSystem, ActorRef }
import akka.testkit.TestProbe

object TestUtils {

  // Structural type needed since DatagramSocket and ServerSocket has no common ancestor apart from Object
  type GeneralSocket = {
    def bind(sa: SocketAddress): Unit
    def close(): Unit
    def getLocalPort(): Int

  def temporaryServerAddress(address: String = "", udp: Boolean = false): InetSocketAddress =
    temporaryServerAddresses(1, address, udp).head

  def temporaryServerAddresses(numberOfAddresses: Int, hostname: String = "", udp: Boolean = false): immutable.IndexedSeq[InetSocketAddress] = {
    Vector.fill(numberOfAddresses) {
      val serverSocket: GeneralSocket =
        if (udp)

      serverSocket.bind(new InetSocketAddress(hostname, 0))
      (serverSocket, new InetSocketAddress(hostname, serverSocket.getLocalPort))
    } collect { case (socket, address) ⇒ socket.close(); address }

  def verifyActorTermination(actor: ActorRef, max: Duration = Duration.Undefined)(implicit system: ActorSystem): Unit = {
    val watcher = TestProbe()
    watcher.expectTerminated(actor, max)
