Apache Struts vs Spring: What are the differences?
Developers describe Apache Struts as "A free open source framework for creating Java web applications". It is a free, open-source, MVC framework for creating elegant, modern Java web applications. It favors convention over configuration, is extensible using a plugin architecture, and ships with plugins to support REST, AJAX and JSON. On the other hand, Spring is detailed 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.
Apache Struts and Spring can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
Apache Struts and Spring are both open source tools. Spring with 31.2K GitHub stars and 20.1K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Apache Struts with 959 GitHub stars and 637 GitHub forks.
