Top 10 Frameworks and Designs you must learn in 2018

Hello DineshonJava readers and followers, first of all Happy new year 2018. This year, I hope, May God bless you and help to fulfill your requirement to achieve your goal of this year. And make target to learn this year top 10 Frameworks and Designs. In previous year 2017, I got lot of responses and queries about my articles. Majority, I got queries about the which frameworks suitable for career and which one has major job opportunities. There are some frameworks are in good demand in the software industry. I have mentioned these framework in this tutorial.

As we know that technology is changing very vastly, so you have to make yourself update to date every days if you want to sustain in the software industry. I know, it is biggest challenge for programmers. You must have good knowledge of some of popular frameworks, it is not only for Java developers but also for non Java developers.

Spring 5 Design Pattern Book

You could purchase my Spring 5 book that is with title name “Spring 5 Design Patterns“. This book is available on the Amazon and Packt publisher website. Learn various design patterns and best practices in Spring 5 and use them to solve common design problems. You could use author discount to purchase this book by using code- “AUTHDIS40“.

There are many other fields such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Data Science and Analytic Jobs. You can learn the technologies for these fields like Big Data frameworks like Spark and Hadoop.

Recently, I got lot of mails and messages on the whatsapp, Facebook page about to learn Microservices with the Docker, Kubernates etc. That means, docker one of very popular container framework. You must aware about it.

Top 10 Frameworks and Designs you must learn in 2018

Let’s see the following top 10 frameworks and designs you must be aware about them. I would recommend you, this year 2018, you must make a target to learn them, It will be benefits for your career growth.

Spring Framework 5

Most of Java developers already aware about the Spring and Hibernate framework. But Pivotal team, recently released new version of the Spring Framework with including lot of new features. One of the major new feature is support for the reactive programming model. Spring 5 Framework is a platform which can be used for the development of JAVA applications. This platform provides the users with the basic support and infrastructure to develop Java applications. It is a beneficial tool for the programmers, offering a number of benefits.

In Spring 5 Framework, I have written a book with title name “Spring 5 Design Patterns” you could purchase it from the Amazon. It is very interesting book on the Spring 5 and it contains new features with including best practices and design patterns.

Spring Boot 2

Spring Boot is one of major achievement of the Pivotal team. It make Java development very easy with zero configuration or minimizing the spring meta configuration. Spring Boot is nothing but it developed on top of existing Spring Framework. It uses completely new development model to make Java Development very easy by avoiding some tedious development steps and boilerplate code and configuration. I have written one article related to the Spring Boot. This article has been appreciated by Josh Long.

Spring Boot 2.0.0 M7 has been released. Spring Boot 2.0.0.M7 requires Java 8 and Spring Framework 5.0.2.RELEASE or above. It supports reactive programming model.

Spring Security 5

Pivotal Team has released first milestone and new version 5.0 of the Spring Security. This new version 5.0 of Spring security includes many bug fixes and a complete new OAuth 2.0 module. As we know on the Spring Security is very popular framework if we talk about the web security. Spring Security 5.0 will add support for Reactive applications by building on top of Spring’s reactive support to secure a Spring WebFlux application.

Reactive Programming Model

The most highlighted feature of the latest version of the Spring Framework is the new reactive stack Web framework. Reactive is being called the update that takes us to future. This area of technology is gaining popularity with every passing day which is the reason why Spring Framework 5.0 has been launched with the capability of reactive programming. This addition makes the latest version of Spring Framework convenient for event-loop style processing which enables scaling with a small number of threads.



It is one of the most popular architectural style for the REST web service. Microservices allow large systems to be built up from a number of collaborating components. Microservices allows to do loose coupling between application processes in stead of loose coupling between application components as Spring does.



Docker is the world’s leading software containerization platform. Docker is the company driving the container movement and the only container platform provider to address every application across the hybrid cloud.


Apache Spark

This is another big data framework which is gaining popularity. Apache Spark is a fast, in-memory data processing engine with elegant and expressive development APIs to allow data workers to efficiently execute streaming, machine learning or SQL workloads that require fast iterative access to datasets.

Apache Spark


jQuery is a fast, small, and feature-rich JavaScript library. It makes things like HTML document traversal and manipulation, event handling, animation, and Ajax much simpler with an easy-to-use API that works across a multitude of browsers. This is one of JavaScript framework which rules the world. You can do animation, send HTTP request, reload pages, and perform client-side validation by writing just a couple of lines of code.



AngularJS is a JavaScript framework. It can be added to an HTML page with a <script> tag. This is another popular JavaScript framework. It provides a completely client-side solution. You can use Angular JS to create dynamic web pages on the client side. AngularJS is a very powerful JavaScript Framework. It is used in Single Page Application (SPA) projects. It is very important to learn if you interested to work with front end technologies. I will personally recommend it to learn this year 2018.



Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript run-time environment for executing JavaScript code server-side. Mostly you have used javascript framework at client side only but Node.js framework on the server side. You can use node.js to create dynamic web pages on the server side before you send them to the client.



React is a front-end library developed by Facebook, Instagram, and a community of individual developers and corporations. It is used for handling the view layer for web and mobile apps. ReactJS allows us to create reusable UI components. It is currently one of the most popular JavaScript libraries and has a strong foundation and large community behind it.


I have mentioned in this article Top 10 Frameworks and Designs related to the backend and front end to learn in the year 2018. Let’s start learning these frameworks and designing style such as Microservices, REST and Reactive Programing architecture. These architecture designs and frameworks are in great demand the software industry. In the case front end web development, Angular Js, React Js and Jqueries are also in the greate demand you must learn one of these frameworks.

Learning these frameworks will not only improve your chances of getting a job but also opens many doors of opportunities. Additionally, Scala is one of functional programming language can add benefits to your career growth. Apache Spark is also a good choice to learn in this year.
