Apache HTTP Server vs Mongoose: What are the differences?

What is Apache HTTP Server? The most popular web server on the Internet since April 1996. The Apache HTTP Server is a powerful and flexible HTTP/1.1 compliant web server. Originally designed as a replacement for the NCSA HTTP Server, it has grown to be the most popular web server on the Internet.

What is Mongoose? MongoDB object modeling designed to work in an asynchronous environment. Let's face it, writing MongoDB validation, casting and business logic boilerplate is a drag. That's why we wrote Mongoose. Mongoose provides a straight-forward, schema-based solution to modeling your application data and includes built-in type casting, validation, query building, business logic hooks and more, out of the box.

Apache HTTP Server and Mongoose are primarily classified as "Web Servers" and "Object Document Mapper (ODM)" tools respectively.

"Web server" is the primary reason why developers consider Apache HTTP Server over the competitors, whereas "Well documented" was stated as the key factor in picking Mongoose.

Apache HTTP Server and Mongoose are both open source tools. It seems that Mongoose with 19K GitHub stars and 2.63K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Apache HTTP Server with 2.21K GitHub stars and 657 GitHub forks.

Slack, MIT, and Intuit are some of the popular companies that use Apache HTTP Server, whereas Mongoose is used by PedidosYa, WebbyLab, and triGo GmbH. Apache HTTP Server has a broader approval, being mentioned in 6194 company stacks & 1067 developers stacks; compared to Mongoose, which is listed in 88 company stacks and 92 developer stacks.

    Reviews of Apache HTTP Server and Mongoose
    Review ofMongooseMongoose

    I inherited a stack where Mongoose is used in the database layer.

    It's been several months and it's still the single highest source of daily WT*s in my backend development. The API is full of irregularities and the design is a poor mix of object-orientation and stateful objects with a lot implicit behavior. Mongoose made the choices of taking the worst parts of ORMs and using them in a context where the benefits of ORMs don't apply. The only reason I'm keeping it is its handy .populate() feature. Expect bad surprises!

    We use httpd in front of our Tomcat web server. Apache terminates the TLS connections and forwards to the embedded Tomcat server(s) for request processing. We also use it as load balancer for multi-server deployments.
