OSGi vs Spring Boot: 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 Boot: 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.
OSGi and Spring Boot can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
Spring Boot is an open source tool with 40.6K GitHub stars and 26.2K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Spring Boot's open source repository on GitHub.
