guava vs Spring Boot: 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 Boot? Create Spring-powered, production-grade applications and services with absolute minimum fuss. Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run". We take an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries so you can get started with minimum fuss. Most Spring Boot applications need very little Spring configuration.
guava can be classified as a tool in the "Java Tools" category, while Spring Boot is grouped under "Frameworks (Full Stack)".
"Interface Driven API" is the primary reason why developers consider guava over the competitors, whereas "Powerful and handy" was stated as the key factor in picking Spring Boot.
guava and Spring Boot are both open source tools. It seems that Spring Boot with 39.8K GitHub stars and 25.8K forks on GitHub has more adoption than guava with 32.5K GitHub stars and 7.28K GitHub forks.
MIT, Intuit, and OpenGov are some of the popular companies that use Spring Boot, whereas guava is used by Zalando, Conceptboard, and RELEX Solutions. Spring Boot has a broader approval, being mentioned in 333 company stacks & 615 developers stacks; compared to guava, which is listed in 14 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.
