Why Gatling is based on Async Http Client instead of Akka-HTTP?

I know Async Http Client is fantastic, but it will mixin some Java code, why not use Akka-HTTP which interact perfectly with Akka Actor?


  • I develop AHC so I have full control over Gatling specific features I want, release cycle, etc…
  • Akka HTTP on client side is not as feature rich as AHC at least atm
    Basically, I don’t expect Gatling to be ever based on something else than Netty.

Thank you for your answer, I get it, and Gatling looks fantastic and I will give it a try!
