Spring vs Apache Sling: What are the differences?

Developers describe Spring as "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. On the other hand, Apache Sling is detailed as "Innovative web framework that is intended to bring back the fun to web development". It is a framework for RESTful web-applications based on an extensible content tree. It maps HTTP request URLs to content resources based on the request's path, extension and selectors. Using convention over configuration, requests are processed by scripts and servlets, dynamically selected based on the current resource. This fosters meaningful URLs and resource driven request processing, while the modular nature of Sling allows for specialized server instances that include only what is needed.

Spring and Apache Sling can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

Spring is an open source tool with 35.1K GitHub stars and 23.3K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Spring's open source repository on GitHub.

      How developers use Apache Sling and Spring

      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.

      The core of the application use Spring Stack, to provide services and structure like:

      • Persistence
      • REST
      • Email
      • Security
      • Self contained application with spring boot
      • And many others.
