Some example code (in java)

@Message(serializationFramework = JacksonSerializationFramework.class,durable = true)
public class Greeting {
    private final String who;

    @JsonCreator
    public Greeting(@JsonProperty("who") String who) {
        this.who = who;
    }

    public String getWho() {
        return who;
    }
}

@Actor(stateClass = StringState.class,serializationFramework = JacksonSerializationFramework.class)
public class GreetingActor extends TypedActor<Greeting> {
    @Override
    public void onReceive(ActorRef sender, Greeting message) throws Exception {
        System.out.println("Hello " + message.getWho());
    }
}

TestActorSystem testActorSystem = new TestActorSystem();
testActorSystem.initialize();

ActorSystem actorSystem = testActorSystem.getActorSystem();
ActorRef greeter = actorSystem.actorOf("greeter",GreetingActor.class);
greeter.tell(new Greeting("Joost van de Wijgerd"),null);

testActorSystem.destroy();
