Scala Async makes it possible to “suspend” at arbitrary points in a block of regular Scala code, and to “resume” from that point later--all without blocking. This not only makes it possible to make concurrent code look sequential, it makes it possible to actually use even the most unfamiliar asynchronous libraries in a familiar blocking style.
What’s more, not only does it come out-of-the-box seamlessly integrated with the Futures and Promises API of Scala 2.10, but you can also easily use it with any other event-driven Scala or Java library of your choice.
