Entities, views, and actions are the three fundamental service component building blocks used to create Kalix serverless services. Entities manage state via commands that drive state-changing business logic and views project entity data into queryable data projections. Actions are stateless functions that consume and transform upstream data transmitted to downstream components. In a way, actions are like synapses that join things in many interesting patterns, which we will explore in this webinar.
