I saw this with the update of Netbeans 7.3, and it looks pretty cool so I thought I would ask this...


It seems like there are so many frameworks for so many different things, I wish there was a listing as to what is used for what? Originally I thoughty Spring and Hibernate were for the same thing, but it seems like Spring is for EE or JSP web side stuff, and Hibernate is for Object Relational Mapping?

It also seems like these "frameworks" are mostly for the web, can these also be used for client side applications?

Seems simple enough to look them up. If you think a "list" is necessary, well, there's your next project.

Apparently you have a lot more reading up to do on Spring.

Hibernate is for Object Relational Mapping?


Yes.

Hibernate is UI agnostic, as are many parts of Spring.

Play, which you mention in your subject and then completely ignore in your post, is a web framework.
