MapStruct vs Quarkus: What are the differences?

Developers describe MapStruct as "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. On the other hand, Quarkus is detailed as "A Kubernetes Native Java stack tailored for OpenJDK HotSpot and GraalVM, crafted from the best of breed Java libraries and standards". It tailors your application for GraalVM and HotSpot. Amazingly fast boot time, incredibly low RSS memory (not just heap size!) offering near instant scale up and high density memory utilization in container orchestration platforms like Kubernetes. We use a technique we call compile time boot.

MapStruct and Quarkus can be primarily classified as "Java" tools.

Some of the features offered by MapStruct are:

  • Mapping (immutable) objects using builders
  • Enhanced and more flexible update method (@MappingTarget) handling
  • Constructor injection for Annotation Based component models

On the other hand, Quarkus provides the following key features:

  • CONTAINER FIRST
  • UNIFIES IMPERATIVE AND REACTIVE
  • BEST OF BREED LIBRARIES AND STANDARDS

MapStruct and Quarkus are both open source tools. It seems that Quarkus with 3.52K GitHub stars and 572 forks on GitHub has more adoption than MapStruct with 2.24K GitHub stars and 360 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to MapStruct and Quarkus?
    Lombok
    It is a java library that automatically plugs into your editor and build tools, spicing up your java. Never write another getter or equals method again, with one annotation your class has a fully featured builder, Automate your logging variables, and much more.
    Jackson
    It is a suite of data-processing tools for Java (and the JVM platform), including the flagship streaming JSON parser / generator library, matching data-binding library (POJOs to and from JSON) and additional data format modules to process data encoded in Avro, BSON, CBOR, CSV, Smile, (Java) Properties, Protobuf, XML or YAML; and even the large set of data format modules to support data types of widely used data types such as Guava, Joda.
    Java 8
    It is a revolutionary release of the world’s no 1 development platform. It includes a huge upgrade to the Java programming model and a coordinated evolution of the JVM, Java language, and libraries. Java 8 includes features for productivity, ease of use, improved polyglot programming, security and improved performance.
    guava
    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.
    RxJava
    A library for composing asynchronous and event-based programs by using observable sequences for the Java VM.
