guava vs Jackson: What are the differences?
Developers describe guava as "Google Core Libraries for Java 6+". 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. On the other hand, Jackson is detailed as "A suite of data-processing tools for Java". It is a suite of data-processing tools for Java (and the JVM platform), including the flagship streaming JSON parser / generator library, matching data-binding library (POJOs to and from JSON) and additional data format modules to process data encoded in Avro, BSON, CBOR, CSV, Smile, (Java) Properties, Protobuf, XML or YAML; and even the large set of data format modules to support data types of widely used data types such as Guava, Joda.
guava and Jackson can be primarily classified as "Java" tools.
guava and Jackson are both open source tools. It seems that guava with 33K GitHub stars and 7.36K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Jackson with 4.89K GitHub stars and 924 GitHub forks.
Zalando, Conceptboard, and RELEX Solutions are some of the popular companies that use guava, whereas Jackson is used by Conceptboard, Wealthsimple, and 浙江网竞. guava has a broader approval, being mentioned in 23 company stacks & 84 developers stacks; compared to Jackson, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 12 developer stacks.
