Java Spring or Python Django.

Posted 21 November 2015 - 11:29 AM

Hello. I am new here. It comes time to write my engineering degree program. I have chosen web application. I am considering those two technologies, and I don't know which one to choose.
I have never wrote something in Python. In java I did some school projects and now I work as younger android developer.

In which one it would be easier to write? If not this, maybe other a simple nice framework?
I am more into first one, but it is only because I have some contact with Java.
Any advice? Thanks for help in advance :)

What do you want your web application to do? Maybe neither is the best choice.

Django and Spring are MVC based frameworks.

However, python offers other frameworks too. Flask or Gunicorn for instance.

Java also offers other frameworks. JSF and Vaadin for instance.

You could use a Node library like Meteor or MEAN.

Web Applications are varied and interesting today.

My application will help to create a timetable for students. And also it will be able to show this plan for students, teachers etc.
I just wonder which one is worth to learn. And which one would be pleasant in work. I am also open to other technologies.

A lot of my friends will write their programs in python+ django. And they said that it is easier. I just wonder whether it is true?

Choose your framework to fit your project. Django is a great way to write web applications - it's what we use at my work - but there are certainly other frameworks and good reasons to use them. Django provides you with a great set of tools for building some sorts of websites, but if you're not in django's wheelhouse, you might choose a more lightweight framework like flask. Or you might prefer to work in ruby, and then you're thinking about Rails, or maybe Sinatra. Or maybe you want to use Java, so you use whatever you use in Java. These decisions really depend on the particular scenario you're working in.

Django is certainly adequate to the task you're describing, but I have no idea if it's the best thing for you.

As a rule of thumb, I tend to avoid J2EE technologies. They're a pain to work with and set up. I'd lean towards Django.

Thanks for answers! I will read about Django. And I probably will choose this, because so many people have recommend it.
And I hope it would be easier to use it :)

A minor point: Gunicorn is an HTTP server, not a framework like Flask or Django.
