MEAN vs Spring MVC: What are the differences?

What is MEAN? A Simple, Scalable and Easy starting point for full stack javascript web development. MEAN (Mongo, Express, Angular, Node) is a boilerplate that provides a nice starting point for MongoDB, Node.js, Express, and AngularJS based applications. It is designed to give you a quick and organized way to start developing MEAN based web apps with useful modules like Mongoose and Passport pre-bundled and configured.

What is Spring MVC? A Java framework which is used to build web applications. A Java framework that follows the Model-View-Controller design pattern and provides an elegant solution to use MVC in spring framework by the help of DispatcherServlet.

MEAN and Spring MVC can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

MEAN and Spring MVC are both open source tools. It seems that Spring MVC with 30.6K GitHub stars and 19.6K forks on GitHub has more adoption than MEAN with 11.8K GitHub stars and 3.57K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, MEAN has a broader approval, being mentioned in 37 company stacks & 24 developers stacks; compared to Spring MVC, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.
