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.
