We performed a comparison between Oracle Application Development Framework and Spring Boot based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Java Frameworks solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The most valuable feature of the Oracle Application Development Framework is the rapid development and the security it provides."
"The single sign-on features applied to Oracle Cloud is a valuable feature. All parts of this application are compatible with single sign-on, where you have a security feature that is very good in Oracle Cloud."
"We can create objects that allow us to develop pages and applications very rapidly."
"The best part of Oracle ADF is being able to easily write code in Java with JavaBean files."
"It's database-centric, and it's seemingly easy to use the model–view–controller pattern that's built-in."
"We like that the product is open-source."
"This solution is really user friendly. In terms of prototyping, it's really fast to build the applications we want to test to complete a proof of concept."
"The most valuable features of Spring Boot include being able to check all the logs and doing health checks for applications. We can also do monitoring more quickly, and use Spring Boot for production support, so when production goes up or down, we can bring up the application very quickly through Spring Boot."
"This is a stable solution that is being used in the HR space."
"We like that it is an open-source tool."
"Spring Boot could improve its integration with the major cloud providers. Connectivity with cloud solutions isn't easy compared to other frameworks like Django and Python."
"The solution is easy to use; I primarily employ integrated templates such as the REST template."
"The most valuable feature of Spring Boot is all the interactions to various applications happen using Spring Boot."
"You need to have Oracle ADF on-premises to build a big project. You need to have a dependable front-end application."
"Oracle Application Development Framework is set to go out of support over the next three years but they should provide support for the solution for the longer term. Additionally, there needs to be more overall optimization and specifically in webpage rendering. The solution uses a lot of resources, and in order for them to move forward, they would have to create a smaller resource impact."
"The model layer could be improved for performance because once that part gets bloated, the performance is lacking. So, there is room for performance optimization."
"I use JDeveloper along with ADF and, unfortunately, JDeveloper is a very slow tool. It takes a lot of time to accomplish things with it during both development and deployment. I hope that Oracle will improve JDeveloper to make it run faster."
"The UI is very slow and not up to market standard."
"The tool's documentation could be improved, especially by tying it back to frequently asked questions and issues users have. A feedback loop in which the documentation targets the most commonly asked user questions would make using the solution easier. Essentially, I want a more user-centered approach to documentation rather than a purely technical focus."
"Spring Boot can improve the dependency tree that we use for libraries. It would be helpful if it was less complex."
"This solution could be improved if it offered greater integration and was more compatible with other solutions."
"This is a really good solution for me and I can't think of anything that can be improved."
"Nothing really comes to mind in terms of areas of improvement."
"I would like to see more integration in this solution."
"Spring Boot is okay right now, but my team is looking for some integration where you can make a call to the JMS messaging service and other types of third-party integrations. If the integration with Spring Boot is improved, that would make the tool better. What I'd like to see in the next release of Spring Boot is its integration or tie-up with messaging servers and third-party EFPs, as that would make it very good and more competitive versus other new solutions in the market."
"It's difficult to explain to junior developers what it does under the hood."
Oracle ADF is an end-to-end Java EE framework that simplifies application development by providing out-of-the-box infrastructure services and a visual and declarative development experience. Oracle ADF simplifies Java EE development by minimizing the need to write code that implements the applicationâs infrastructure allowing the developers to focus on the features of the actual application. Oracle ADF provides these infrastructure implementations as part of the framework. It also implements the Model-View-Controller design pattern and offers an integrated solution that covers all the layers of the architecture integrated with the Oracle SOA and WebCenter Portal frameworks.
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.”
Oracle Application Development Framework is ranked 7th in Java Frameworks with 5 reviews while Spring Boot is ranked 1st in Java Frameworks with 15 reviews. Oracle Application Development Framework is rated 7.6, while Spring Boot is rated 8.6. The top reviewer of Oracle Application Development Framework writes "Eases the writing of code in Java with JavaBeans; easy to set up". On the other hand, the top reviewer of Spring Boot writes "Lightweight, easy to understand, and is cloud-native". Oracle Application Development Framework is most compared with Spring MVC, Apache Spark, Jakarta EE and Amazon Corretto, whereas Spring Boot is most compared with Jakarta EE, Eclipse MicroProfile, Apache Spark, Open Liberty and Amazon Corretto.
