How do you instantiate an Actor?
You cannot create an instance of an Actor using the
new keyword. Instead, you create Actor instances using a factory (
akka.actor.ActorSystem) which does not return an actor instance, but a reference,
akka.actor.ActorRef, that points to the actor instance.
akka.actor.ActorSystem factory acts as a container for Actors and manages their life-cycles. The
actorOf factory method creates Actors and takes two parameters, a configuration object called Props and a name (Actor name).
