Akka/Scala example source code file (

This example Akka source code file ( 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

activationtestbase, actorref, actorsystem, future, myconsumer, props, seconds, string, suppresswarnings, test, untypedconsumeractor

The Akka example source code

  public void testActivation() {

    // ..
    ActorSystem system = ActorSystem.create("some-system");
    Props props = Props.create(MyConsumer.class);
    ActorRef producer = system.actorOf(props,"myproducer");
    Camel camel = CamelExtension.get(system);
    // get a future reference to the activation of the endpoint of the Consumer Actor
    Timeout timeout = new Timeout(Duration.create(10, SECONDS));
    Future<ActorRef> activationFuture = camel.activationFutureFor(producer,
      timeout, system.dispatcher());
    // ..
    // get a future reference to the deactivation of the endpoint of the Consumer Actor
    Future<ActorRef> deactivationFuture = camel.deactivationFutureFor(producer,
      timeout, system.dispatcher());

  public static class MyConsumer extends UntypedConsumerActor {
    public String getEndpointUri() {
      return "direct:test";

    public void onReceive(Object message) {
