.NET vs Spring Batch: What are the differences?
What is .NET? A free, cross-platform, open source developer platform for building many different types of applications. .NET is a general purpose development platform. With .NET, you can use multiple languages, editors, and libraries to build native applications for web, mobile, desktop, gaming, and IoT for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and more.
What is Spring Batch? A lightweight, comprehensive batch framework. It is designed to enable the development of robust batch applications vital for the daily operations of enterprise systems It also provides reusable functions that are essential in processing large volumes of records, including logging/tracing, transaction management, job processing statistics, job restart, skip, and resource management..
.NET and Spring Batch belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by .NET are:
- Multiple languages: You can write .NET apps in C#, F#, or Visual Basic.
- Cross Platform: Whether you're working in C#, F#, or Visual Basic, your code will run natively on any compatible OS.
- Consistent API & Libraries: To extend functionality, Microsoft and others maintain a healthy package ecosystem built on .NET Standard.
On the other hand, Spring Batch provides the following key features:
- Transaction management
- Chunk based processing
- Declarative I/O
.NET and Spring Batch are both open source tools. It seems that .NET with 11.2K GitHub stars and 2.41K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Spring Batch with 1.3K GitHub stars and 1.3K GitHub forks.
Decided to change all my stack to microsoft technologies for they behave just great together. It is very easy to set up and deploy projects using visual studio and azure. Visual studio is also an amazing IDE, if not the best, when used for C#, it allows you to work in every aspect of your software.
Visual studio templates for ASP.NET MVC are the best I've found compared to django, rails, laravel, and others.
