guava vs Spring: 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 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.

guava and Spring are primarily classified as "Java" and "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools respectively.

"Interface Driven API" is the primary reason why developers consider guava over the competitors, whereas "Java" was stated as the key factor in picking Spring.

guava and Spring are both open source tools. It seems that guava with 32.3K GitHub stars and 7.22K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Spring with 30.1K GitHub stars and 19.2K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Spring has a broader approval, being mentioned in 316 company stacks & 179 developers stacks; compared to guava, which is listed in 14 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.

      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.

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