2 Usage

Installing the plugin

First you need to install the plugin into a Grails application: using the recommended way, configure it as a dependency in BuildConfig.groovy:

plugins {
    compile ':akka:<plugin version>'


  • a Servlet 3.x container to run the Web application, so be sure to force it in BuildConfig.groovy:

grails.servlet.version = "3.0"
  • Akka 2.x (as specified in plugin descriptor) and related dependencies,

all downloaded from the Central Maven Repository (that must be enabled).
