@cconstantin I don't think so, Akka.Persistence is build for eventsourcing as primary state persistence technique, as it's the most reliable in distributed, error-prone environments. If you can store only current state, it's trivial to do this by yourself, but there are some things to keep in mind i.e. how will you prevent state loss in case of outage.
when I said transport layer I didn't mean json - it's part of serialization mechanism not transport itself ;) @Aaronontheweb will know details, but AFAIK part of the problem is that JVM uses big endian network byte order, while .NET uses little endian
ok guys, serious question - when we're joining two actor paths some/base/path/ and /some/child/path using /, what the result should be? Because right now it is some/base/path//some/child/path (notice double / in the middle), which is not a valid path.
