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

This example Akka source code file (PinnedDispatcher.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

The PinnedDispatcher.scala Akka example source code

package akka.dispatch

import scala.concurrent.duration.Duration
import scala.concurrent.duration.FiniteDuration

 * Dedicates a unique thread for each actor passed in as reference. Served through its messageQueue.
 * The preferred way of creating dispatchers is to define configuration of it and use the
 * the `lookup` method in [[akka.dispatch.Dispatchers]].
class PinnedDispatcher(
  _configurator: MessageDispatcherConfigurator,
  _actor: ActorCell,
  _id: String,
  _shutdownTimeout: FiniteDuration,
  _threadPoolConfig: ThreadPoolConfig)
  extends Dispatcher(_configurator,
    _threadPoolConfig.copy(corePoolSize = 1, maxPoolSize = 1),
    _shutdownTimeout) {

  private var owner: ActorCell = _actor

  //Relies on an external lock provided by MessageDispatcher.attach
  protected[akka] override def register(actorCell: ActorCell) = {
    val actor = owner
    if ((actor ne null) && actorCell != actor) throw new IllegalArgumentException("Cannot register to anyone but " + actor)
    owner = actorCell
  //Relies on an external lock provided by MessageDispatcher.detach
  protected[akka] override def unregister(actor: ActorCell) = {
    owner = null
