Spring vs Yii: What are the differences?

Developers describe Spring as "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. On the other hand, Yii is detailed as "A high-performance PHP framework best for developing Web 2.0 applications". Yii comes with: MVC, DAO/ActiveRecord, I18N/L10N, caching, authentication and role-based access control, scaffolding, testing, etc. It can reduce your development time significantly.

Spring and Yii can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"Java" is the primary reason why developers consider Spring over the competitors, whereas "Open source" was stated as the key factor in picking Yii.

Spring and Yii are both open source tools. Spring with 30.1K GitHub stars and 19.2K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Yii with 4.87K GitHub stars and 2.21K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Spring has a broader approval, being mentioned in 316 company stacks & 179 developers stacks; compared to Yii, which is listed in 48 company stacks and 29 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to Spring and Yii?
    Spring Boot
    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.
    Foundation
    Foundation is the most advanced responsive front-end framework in the world. You can quickly prototype and build sites or apps that work on any kind of device with Foundation, which includes layout constructs (like a fully responsive grid), elements and best practices.
    Node.js
    Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
    ASP.NET
    .NET is a developer platform made up of tools, programming languages, and libraries for building many different types of applications.
    Rails
    Rails is a web-application framework that includes everything needed to create database-backed web applications according to the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern.

    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:

    • Persistence
    • REST
    • Email
    • Security
    • 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.
