I did a lot of self-study coding, got some experience with Parallel Programming Models: Actors, Software Transactional Memory, Data Flow.
When I am trying to apply these architectures to real life - into high load web application - any model doesn't support durability and persistence for data. Real life tasks requires to save data at the end. This means that still I have to use DB and trapping DB syncs, possible scalability bottle necks etc.
Does anybody knows good example of architecture (src or text or diagram or blueprints) that uses Akka Actors or Software Transaction Memory and implement persistence at the end?
Any good example/idea for Transactional Memory, Actors, Dataflow, Tuple spaces in real life applications is welcome.
