MyBatis vs MapStruct: What are the differences?
MyBatis: SQL Mapper Framework for Java. It is a first class persistence framework with support for custom SQL, stored procedures and advanced mappings. It eliminates almost all of the JDBC code and manual setting of parameters and retrieval of results. It can use simple XML or Annotations for configuration and map primitives, Map interfaces and Java POJOs (Plain Old Java Objects) to database records; MapStruct: A Java code generator for creating fast and type-safe bean mappings at compile time. It is a code generator that greatly simplifies the implementation of mappings between Java bean types based on a convention over configuration approach. The generated mapping code uses plain method invocations and thus is fast, type-safe and easy to understand.
MyBatis and MapStruct can be primarily classified as "Java" tools.
MyBatis and MapStruct are both open source tools. MyBatis with 11.8K GitHub stars and 7.48K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than MapStruct with 2K GitHub stars and 330 GitHub forks.
