When accessing resources such us RabbitMQ or JMS etc. I usually interact with Java libraries that sequentially call
poll method on a class provided by me. To make things simple to process I push it further to Kafka and eventually use Spark to process the data.
But what if I wanted to write a more “conventional” application - simply reading from JMS, doing some processing in-memory and writing results to a file periodically. What is a preferred tool to use by you? I am thinking about Akka Streams with an actor that writes to a source. At the same time I am not sure if this is not an overkill or if there are some sort of connectors for Akka Streams etc.
