JBoss vs Spring Boot: What are the differences?

Developers describe JBoss as "An open-source Java EE-based application server". An application platform for hosting your apps that provides an innovative modular, cloud-ready architecture, powerful management and automation, and world class developer productivity. On the other hand, Spring Boot is detailed as "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.

JBoss can be classified as a tool in the "Web Servers" category, while Spring Boot is grouped under "Frameworks (Full Stack)".

Spring Boot is an open source tool with 39.8K GitHub stars and 25.8K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Spring Boot's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Spring Boot has a broader approval, being mentioned in 333 company stacks & 617 developers stacks; compared to JBoss, which is listed in 14 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.
