This talk introduces the Akka TestKit, which supports a wide range of testing approaches from white-box to black-box, detailing strengths and weaknesses of the different levels at which tests can be conducted. The second part focuses on how the Finite State Machine module can be used to separate concerns within an actor and how this affects testing, finishing with dedicated FSM test facilities.
