Guice vs Meteor: What are the differences?

Developers describe Guice as "A lightweight dependency injection framework for Java". It is an open-source software framework for the Java platform. It provides support for dependency injection using annotations to configure Java objects. It embraces Java's type safe nature, especially when it comes to features introduced in Java 5 such as generics and annotations. On the other hand, Meteor is detailed as "An ultra-simple, database-everywhere, data-on-the-wire, pure-Javascript web framework". A Meteor application is a mix of JavaScript that runs inside a client web browser, JavaScript that runs on the Meteor server inside a Node.js container, and all the supporting HTML fragments, CSS rules, and static assets.

Guice and Meteor can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

Meteor is an open source tool with 41.2K GitHub stars and 5.04K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Meteor's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Meteor has a broader approval, being mentioned in 255 company stacks & 1057 developers stacks; compared to Guice, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.

Next.js is probably the most enjoyable React framework our team could have picked. The development is an extremely smooth process, the file structure is beautiful and organized, and the speed is no joke. Our work with Next.js comes out much faster than if it was built on pure React or frameworks alike. We were previously developing all of our projects in Meteor before making the switch. We left Meteor due to the slow compiler and website speed. We deploy all of our Next.js projects on Vercel.

This basically came down to two things: performance on compute-heavy tasks and a need for good tooling. We used to have a Meteor based Node.js application which worked great for RAD and getting a working prototype in a short time, but we felt pains trying to scale it, especially when doing anything involving crunching data, which Node sucks at. We also had bad experience with tooling support for doing large scale refactorings in Javascript compared to the best-in-class tools available for Java (IntelliJ). Given the heavy domain and very involved logic we wanted good tooling support to be able to do great refactorings that are just not possible in Javascript. Java is an old warhorse, but it performs fantastically and we have not regretted going down this route, avoiding "enterprise" smells and going as lightweight as we can, using Jdbi instead of Persistence API, a homegrown Actor Model library for massive concurrency, etc ...

      What are some alternatives to Guice and Meteor?
      Spring
      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.
      CDI
      It is a standard dependency injection framework included in Java EE 6 and higher. It allows us to manage the lifecycle of stateful components via domain-specific lifecycle contexts and inject components (services) into client objects in a type-safe way.
      Mockito
      It is a mocking framework that tastes really good. It lets you write beautiful tests with a clean & simple API. It doesn’t give you hangover because the tests are very readable and they produce clean verification errors.
      Node.js
      Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
      Django
      Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.
