What is AngularJS?

AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.
AngularJS is a tool in the Javascript MVC Frameworks category of a tech stack.
AngularJS is an open source tool with 59.4K GitHub stars and 28.2K GitHub forks. Here’s a link to AngularJS's open source repository on GitHub

I am looking to develop a web application in Java. I want to use a front-end framework for the front-end design, and I am not sure which one to use. For this use case, would you choose to use React or AngularJS? Are there any other frameworks that are easy to learn and have useful features?

AngularJS Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to AngularJS?
JavaScript
JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
Angular 2
It is a TypeScript-based open-source web application framework. It is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
React
Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
Node.js
Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
jQuery
jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.
