The actor extension described in this article adds parallel functional constructions to imperative Java language.
Such an extension is useful as it makes parallel programming in Java much easier. Actor model implemented by the
extension is well used in functional programming language Erlang. The choice of Meta Programming System
(MPS) as the actor extension creation tool made it possible to create an integrated development environment for the
extension automatically, moreover, the extension is compatible with other language extensions created in MPS.
