Meteor vs Spring Framework: What are the differences?

Meteor: 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; Spring Framework: An application framework and inversion of control container for the Java platform. It provides a comprehensive programming and configuration model for modern Java-based enterprise applications - on any kind of deployment platform The framework's core features can be used by any Java application, but there are extensions for building web applications on top of the Java EE platform..

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

Some of the features offered by Meteor are:

  • Pure JavaScript
  • Live page updates
  • Clean, powerful data synchronization

On the other hand, Spring Framework provides the following key features:

  • Lightweight
  • Dependency Injection
  • Transaction Management

Meteor and Spring Framework are both open source tools. It seems that Meteor with 41.2K GitHub stars and 5.03K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Spring Framework with 30.6K GitHub stars and 19.6K GitHub forks.

Accenture, Rocket.Chat, and FashionUnited are some of the popular companies that use Meteor, whereas Spring Framework is used by Monkey Exchange, CrawlorSoft, and engel80. Meteor has a broader approval, being mentioned in 195 company stacks & 157 developers stacks; compared to Spring Framework, which is listed in 4 company stacks and 10 developer stacks.

Hi there, I'm deciding the technology to use in my project.

I need to build software that has:

  • Login
  • Register
  • Main View (access to a user account, News, General Info, Business hours, software, and parts section).
  • Account Preferences.
  • Web Shop for Parts (Support, Download Sections, Ticket System).

The most critical functionality is a WebSocket that connects between a car that sends real-time data through serial communication, and a server performs diagnosis on the car and sends the results back to the user.

NestJS

You can use NestJs with microservice architecture.where you can also use socket.io for web socket. you can use MongoDB (For real-time data) & MySQL for customer management.if you don't want to implement websocket.you can use firebase.it gives realtime database & firestore.which can handle millions of connections and scale it up.

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 ...
