Getting remoting to work without activator

I’m new to Akka and I’m working through Jason Goodwin’s well written book Learning Akka. His examples use activator, though, and since activator is gone I’ve recreated them without activator. The problem is that without activator remoting doesn’t start when I start his example database from Chapter 2. My client also cannot connect to a running database (his code with activator).

What do I have to do to get client and server remoting to work without activator?


I don’t think activator did do anything magic around getting the host name and ports right when using remoting/cluster or connecting to a database, that’s is likely just config/regular logic that should work with vanilla sbt.

Do you have a link to your re-created sample project?
