We performed a comparison between Jakarta EE and Spring Boot based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about VMware, Apache, Eclipse Foundation and others in Java Frameworks.
For many years, Java EE has been a major platform for mission-critical enterprise applications. In order to accelerate business application development for a cloud-native world, leading software vendors collaborated to move Java EE technologies to the Eclipse Foundation where they will evolve under the Jakarta EE brand.
Spring Boot is a tool that makes developing web applications and microservices with the Java Spring Framework faster and easier, with minimal configuration and setup. By using Spring Boot, you avoid all the manual writing of boilerplate code, annotations, and complex XML configurations. Spring Boot integrates easily with other Spring products and can connect with multiple databases.
How Spring Boot improves Spring Framework
Java Spring Framework is a popular, open-source framework for creating standalone applications that run on the Java Virtual Machine.
Although the Spring Framework is powerful, it still takes significant time and knowledge to configure, set up, and deploy Spring applications. Spring Boot is designed to get developers up and running as quickly as possible, with minimal configuration of Spring Framework with three important capabilities.
Reviews from Real Users
Spring Boot stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its flexible integration options and its autoconfiguration feature, which allows users to start developing applications in a minimal amount of time.
A system analyst and team lead at a tech services company writes, “Spring Boot has a very lightweight framework, and you can develop projects within a short time. It's open-source and customizable. It's easy to control, has a very interesting deployment policy, and a very interesting testing policy. It's sophisticated. For data analysis and data mining, you can use a custom API and integrate your application. That's an advanced feature. For data managing and other things, you can get that custom from a third-party API. That is also a free license.”
Randy M., A CEO at Modal Technologies Corporation, writes, “I have found the starter solutions valuable, as well as integration with other products. Spring Security facilitates the handling of standard security measures. The Spring Boot annotations make it easy to handle routing for microservices and to access request and response objects. Other annotations included with Spring Boot enable move away from XML configuration.”
Jakarta EE is ranked 6th in Java Frameworks while Spring Boot is ranked 1st in Java Frameworks with 15 reviews. Jakarta EE is rated 0.0, while Spring Boot is rated 8.6.
