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

This example Akka source code file (Timeout.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

akka, concurrent, duration, finiteduration, long, serialversionuid, time, timeout, timeunit, util

The Timeout.scala Akka example source code

 * Copyright (C) 2009-2014 Typesafe Inc. <>

package akka.util

import language.implicitConversions

import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit
import java.lang.{ Double ⇒ JDouble }
import scala.concurrent.duration.{ Duration, FiniteDuration }

case class Timeout(duration: FiniteDuration) {

   * Construct a Timeout from the given time unit and factor.
  def this(length: Long, unit: TimeUnit) = this(Duration(length, unit))

 * A Timeout is a wrapper on top of Duration to be more specific about what the duration means.
object Timeout {

   * A timeout with zero duration, will cause most requests to always timeout.
  val zero: Timeout = new Timeout(Duration.Zero)

   * Construct a Timeout from the given time unit and factor.
  def apply(length: Long, unit: TimeUnit): Timeout = new Timeout(length, unit)

  implicit def durationToTimeout(duration: FiniteDuration): Timeout = new Timeout(duration)
