CDI vs MapStruct: What are the differences?

Developers describe CDI as "A standard dependency injection framework *". It is a standard dependency injection framework included in Java EE 6 and higher. It allows us to manage the lifecycle of stateful components via domain-specific lifecycle contexts and inject components (services) into client objects in a type-safe way. On the other hand, *MapStruct** is detailed as "A Java code generator for creating fast and type-safe bean mappings at compile time". It is a code generator that greatly simplifies the implementation of mappings between Java bean types based on a convention over configuration approach. The generated mapping code uses plain method invocations and thus is fast, type-safe and easy to understand.

CDI and MapStruct can be primarily classified as "Java" tools.

MapStruct is an open source tool with 2K GitHub stars and 330 GitHub forks. Here's a link to MapStruct's open source repository on GitHub.

    Marvel
    A super simple tool that turns any image (including PSDs) or sketch into interactive prototypes for any device. Powered by Dropbox.
    Spring
    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.
    Java 8
    It is a revolutionary release of the world’s no 1 development platform. It includes a huge upgrade to the Java programming model and a coordinated evolution of the JVM, Java language, and libraries. Java 8 includes features for productivity, ease of use, improved polyglot programming, security and improved performance.
    guava
    The Guava project contains several of Google's core libraries that we rely on in our Java-based projects: collections, caching, primitives support, concurrency libraries, common annotations, string processing, I/O, and so forth.
    RxJava
    A library for composing asynchronous and event-based programs by using observable sequences for the Java VM.
