Akka Streams split stream by type



I have the following simple case class hierarchy:

sealed trait Message
case class Foo(bar: Int) extends Message
case class Baz(qux: String) extends Message


And I have a
Flow[Message, Message, NotUsed]
(from a Websocket-based protocol with codec already in place).

I want to demultiplex this
Flow[Message]
into separate flows for Foo and Baz types, as those are processed by completely different pathways.

What is the simplest way of doing that? Should be obvious, but I am missing something...

Answer

One way is to use create a RunnableGraph that includes the Flows for each type of message.

val g = RunnableGraph.fromGraph(GraphDSL.create() { implicit builder: GraphDSL.Builder[NotUsed] =>

  val in = Source(...)  // Some message source
  val out = Sink.ignore

  val foo = builder.add(Flow[Message].map (x => x match { case f@Foo(_) => f }))
  val baz = builder.add(Flow[Message].map (x => x match { case b@Baz(_) => b }))
  val partition = builder.add(Partition[Message](2, {
    case Foo(_) => 0
    case Baz(_) => 1
  }))

  partition ~> foo ~> // other Flow[Foo] here ~> out
  partition ~> baz ~> // other Flow[Baz] here ~> out

  ClosedShape
}

g.run()
