Spring framework is the topmost framework currently and will continue to grow in its popularity for developing web applications. It is lightweight, easy to use, and makes Java simple to learn and cloud-ready. Earlier, Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) was a big competition to Spring framework but with time Spring won because of its active development capability and fast to react with changing environment. Spring framework is the number one framework on the list because of its useful features. It will continue to grow in the JVM ecosystem.
Top 10 Java Frameworks of 2020
The above list depicts the top 10 frameworks in order of popularity and usage. However, the usage of the framework and its popularity varies according to the country. As an example, Spring is the most used Java framework in India and the US. In Australia, the preferred and most used framework is hibernate. Google Web Toolkit is most used in New Zealand. A combination of frameworks is used in specific regions of the world.
Below are the top 3 Java frameworks mostly used:
Spring: Spring is open-source and is mainly used in Enterprise applications. It allows the developers to build modules, where the framework handles all the dependencies instead of the libraries present within the code. The primary features of Spring, including configuration and security, makes it easy to use and learn. Moreover, it has a large and active community owing to its popularity. The use of Spring Framework makes the code easy to comprehend and clean.
Struts: Struts is also an open-source framework used for building web applications. The framework follows the Model View Controller (MVC). It separates the model, view, and controller but binds them together using the configuration file, say struts-config.xml. Also, a group of tag libraries maintains the view. The controller has the Action Servlet, which offers the developers a platform to write templates. ActionForm maintains the user data. Though Struts uses MVC, it is much easier to set up with more extensibility and flexibility as compared to the traditional MVC, which used JSP and servlets.
Hibernate: Hibernate is a Java framework that has simplified the interaction of Java applications with the database. It is also an open-source and lightweight framework used to map a relational database with an object-oriented model. It is basically an Object Relational Mapping database (ORM) for the web applications created in Java. The queries used in Hibernate are called Hibernate Query Language (HQL). The mapping information of database configuration and Java classes is stored in the file hibernate.cfg.xml. All in all, Hibernate solves the problem of JDBC as it offers an abstraction layer to loosely couple the code with the database.
Spring is a Java framework, which is the most preferred by developers across the world for application development. The most important feature of the Spring framework is that it is compatible with every Java application. The framework eases the development of enterprise-based and web-based applications. It also acts as an Inversion-of-Control (IOC) container class for Java.
Now, talking about the roles and responsibilities that a Spring developer has to perform. The Spring Developer works in such a way to get the maximum from the framework and achieve the result-driven solution. The Spring Developers provide the support along with Java development. Here is the list of key responsibilities of a Spring developer:
