guava vs Quarkus: What are the differences?

What is guava? 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.

What is Quarkus? A Kubernetes Native Java stack tailored for OpenJDK HotSpot and GraalVM, crafted from the best of breed Java libraries and standards. It tailors your application for GraalVM and HotSpot. Amazingly fast boot time, incredibly low RSS memory (not just heap size!) offering near instant scale up and high density memory utilization in container orchestration platforms like Kubernetes. We use a technique we call compile time boot.

guava and Quarkus can be categorized as "Java" tools.

guava and Quarkus are both open source tools. It seems that guava with 35.2K GitHub stars and 7.87K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Quarkus with 3.52K GitHub stars and 572 GitHub forks.
