From Wikipedia: Akka is an open-source toolkit and runtime simplifying the construction of concurrent and distributed applications on the JVM. Akka supports multiple programming models for concurrency, but it emphasizes actor-based concurrency, with inspiration drawn from Erlang.

Language bindings exist for both Java and Scala. Akka is written in Scala, and as of Scala 2.10, Akka's actor implementation is included as part of the Scala standard library.
