Guice vs Spring: What are the differences?

What is Guice? 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.

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.

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

Spring is an open source tool with 31.2K GitHub stars and 20.1K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Spring's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Spring has a broader approval, being mentioned in 441 company stacks & 1263 developers stacks; compared to Guice, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 4 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.

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

      그냥 간단한 MVC 웹 프레임 워크 인줄 알았는데 정말 모듈화가 잘 되있고, 사용하다보면 개발자에게 정말 편리하게 만들어 놓았다. vaildation 부분은 따로 처리 할 수 있고, 파라미터 담는 변수와 디폴트 값을 인자로 설정해 주는 부분도 참 좋은 것 같다. 또 spring-data 는 jpa 활용해 빠르게 개발하는데 유용하다.
