Akka vs Spring: What are the differences?
Akka: Build powerful concurrent & distributed applications more easily. Akka is a toolkit and runtime for building highly concurrent, distributed, and resilient message-driven applications on the JVM; Spring: Provides a comprehensive programming and configuration model for modern Java-based enterprise applications. A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.
Akka and Spring are primarily classified as "Concurrency Frameworks" and "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools respectively.
"Great concurrency model" is the top reason why over 22 developers like Akka, while over 192 developers mention "Java" as the leading cause for choosing Spring.
Akka and Spring are both open source tools. It seems that Spring with 30.1K GitHub stars and 19.2K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Akka with 9.99K GitHub stars and 3.03K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Spring has a broader approval, being mentioned in 316 company stacks & 179 developers stacks; compared to Akka, which is listed in 75 company stacks and 54 developer stacks.

Spring is another gift rained down by the gods of Open Source Software (a.k.a. Pivotal Labs in this particular case) that just makes sense on all levels.
From Spring Boot, to SpringMVC, the configuration architecture & profile paradigm, Spring Cloud expandability, to the ease with which one can deploy Spring applets as microservices within Docker is an absolute joy.
we used akka as our concurrency system at talenthouse. had the chance to write several worker. we used both akka messaging and rabbitmq to communicate. quite a slick system, was fun writing it in scala.
The core of the application use Spring Stack, to provide services and structure like:
- Self contained application with spring boot
- And many others.
그냥 간단한 MVC 웹 프레임 워크 인줄 알았는데 정말 모듈화가 잘 되있고, 사용하다보면 개발자에게 정말 편리하게 만들어 놓았다. vaildation 부분은 따로 처리 할 수 있고, 파라미터 담는 변수와 디폴트 값을 인자로 설정해 주는 부분도 참 좋은 것 같다. 또 spring-data 는 jpa 활용해 빠르게 개발하는데 유용하다.
Akka powers our asynchronous document upload processor, handling e.g. tasks for OCR, thumbnail generation and document analysis.
