JActor2 replaces JActor 19 Mar 2014 09:02

We have spent a year cleaning up JActor, the goals being a cleaner API, easier to learn and greater robustness. Please visit the new project at "JActor2 is a multi-threaded OO programming model, inspired by Alan Kay's early thoughts on Objects. JActor2 is based on asynchronous 2-way messaging with assured responses. The net result being code that is both simpler and more robust, and hence easier to maintain."
