Not to steal any Erlang steam here but those of you who need at least some 
kind of Actor-ish lightweight behaviour in their Java should check out the 
ForkJoin work going on in the jsr166y project 
(http://gee.cs.oswego.edu/dl/concurrency-interest/). Tim Peierls set up a 
Wiki at http://artisans-serverintellect-com.si-eioswww6.com/default.asp?W1 
which provides some overview and example code.

(ZOMG! I can't believe I'm advocating Java..)
