guava vs RxJava: What are the differences?

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; RxJava: Reactive Extensions for the JVM. A library for composing asynchronous and event-based programs by using observable sequences for the Java VM.

guava and RxJava can be primarily classified as "Java" tools.

guava and RxJava are both open source tools. RxJava with 39.7K GitHub stars and 6.7K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than guava with 32.5K GitHub stars and 7.28K GitHub forks.

TimeHop, SocialCops, and Poq are some of the popular companies that use RxJava, whereas guava is used by Zalando, Conceptboard, and RELEX Solutions. RxJava has a broader approval, being mentioned in 35 company stacks & 12 developers stacks; compared to guava, which is listed in 14 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.

Java 8
It is a revolutionary release of the world’s no 1 development platform. It includes a huge upgrade to the Java programming model and a coordinated evolution of the JVM, Java language, and libraries. Java 8 includes features for productivity, ease of use, improved polyglot programming, security and improved performance.
Quarkus
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.
Thymeleaf
It is a modern server-side Java template engine for both web and standalone environments. It is aimed at creating elegant web code while adding powerful features and retaining prototyping abilities.
Lombok
It is a java library that automatically plugs into your editor and build tools, spicing up your java. Never write another getter or equals method again, with one annotation your class has a fully featured builder, Automate your logging variables, and much more.
MyBatis
It is a first class persistence framework with support for custom SQL, stored procedures and advanced mappings. It eliminates almost all of the JDBC code and manual setting of parameters and retrieval of results. It can use simple XML or Annotations for configuration and map primitives, Map interfaces and Java POJOs (Plain Old Java Objects) to database records.
