Cocoa (OS X) vs Spring: What are the differences?

What is Cocoa (OS X)? The Cocoa frameworks consist of libraries, APIs, and runtimes that form the development layer for all of OS X. Much of Cocoa is implemented in Objective-C, an object-oriented language that is compiled to run at incredible speed, yet employs a truly dynamic runtime making it uniquely flexible. Because Objective-C is a superset of C, it is easy to mix C and even C++ into your Cocoa applications.

What is Spring? 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.

Cocoa (OS X) and Spring belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.

"Great community " is the top reason why over 2 developers like Cocoa (OS X), while over 192 developers mention "Java" as the leading cause for choosing Spring.

Spring is an open source tool with 30.6K GitHub stars and 19.6K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Spring's open source repository on GitHub.

    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.

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

    그냥 간단한 MVC 웹 프레임 워크 인줄 알았는데 정말 모듈화가 잘 되있고, 사용하다보면 개발자에게 정말 편리하게 만들어 놓았다. vaildation 부분은 따로 처리 할 수 있고, 파라미터 담는 변수와 디폴트 값을 인자로 설정해 주는 부분도 참 좋은 것 같다. 또 spring-data 는 jpa 활용해 빠르게 개발하는데 유용하다.
