Java programming language has many frameworks that are as popular as the language itself. These frameworks have many outstanding features and functionalities that make them different from other frameworks. Here are five Java frameworks that will be popular this year:
Java Spring: Java Spring is the best Java framework. It is the first preference of all Java developers. It is highly suitable for developing complex web applications and enterprise-level applications. Applications developed using the framework are always high performing once. The Spring framework comes with Spring MNV and Spring Boot. These are some of the most advanced technologies the world of web development has ever seen. It also uses Inversion of Control or IoC. Its configuration model is all-inclusive, which means it supports both traditional and modern databases. It also supports Aspect-oriented programming. These features are developer-friendly, and therefore, they contribute to its immense popularity.
Java Blade: Java Blade was first released in 2015, and its popularity has grown rapidly in the last few years. It is simple and lightweight but full of robust features. Not only can it create web applications in no time, but it also ensures that developers do not have to spend several months learning. Any Java developer can easily understand and work with the different features of the framework in one day. One of its best features is that it is a full-stack framework. It can be used for both front-end and back-end. Its coding structure is also clean and readable. It supports plugins and webjar resources, as well.
Struts: Struts is an open-source framework. It can be used to create web applications as well as mobile-friendly versions of those applications. It functions on the Model View Controller pattern. Struts is a plugin-based framework; hence it is highly customisable. It comes with popular plugins including JSON plugin, Config Browser Plugin, REST plugin, and so on. It also allows the seamless integration of other third-party plugins within the framework. An interesting feature of the Struts plugins is that they are JAR packages which means they can be added to the classpath of the application when it is being developed. Struts can also be integrated with other Java frameworks to add the unique features of those frameworks into the app. For instance, it does not have the feature of dependency injection. So if you want to add it in your web application, you can easily integrate the Java Spring plugin to do so.
Vaadin: Vaadin makes web development more efficient. You can create customisable components of your own to improve the performance of your site. You can also make it more user-friendly with the elements that you create. Vlaadin is best for building interactive and feature-rich web applications. With Vaadin 10, you can use the Java Virtual Machine or JVM to access DOM directly. It is also divided into two parts- one is a set of UI and the other a lightweight framework called Vaadin flow. Vaadin flow works on server-client communication. It also helps in routing the application. The UI components work in the browser of the user. Vlaadin offers proper documentation for web applications.
Vert.x: The Vert.x framework was developed by the Eclipse foundation. It is a unique Java framework that can work with other programming languages as well such as Kotlin, Ruby on Rails, Scala, Groovy, and so on. It is event-driven, which means it can be used to make scalable web applications. The scalability requires minimum use of hardware resources. Vert.x is a modular framework. This means that it allows you to add libraries as well as components from other libraries while creating your website. It is easy to install, learn and use and is, therefore, another of the top Java frameworks.
