OSGi vs Spring: What are the differences?
OSGi: The Dynamic Module System for Java. It is a Java framework for developing and deploying modular software programs and libraries. It provides a vendor-independent, standards-based approach to modularizing Java software applications and infrastructure; 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.
OSGi and Spring belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.
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.
MIT, Zillow, and Intuit are some of the popular companies that use Spring, whereas OSGi is used by Liferay, Netcentric, and Enonic AS. Spring has a broader approval, being mentioned in 441 company stacks & 1263 developers stacks; compared to OSGi, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 9 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.
The core of the application use Spring Stack, to provide services and structure like:
- 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.
- SpringFramework 중 MVC , AOP 등의 라이브러리를 활용하여 웹 어플리케이션 프로젝트 구성
공통 로직 구현 및 보안 처리 가능
Spring5에서 지원하는 함수형 프로그래밍 경험 있음
