Which java framework is best for building social media website like Quora.
Framework which has supportive community, less verbose, easy to implement, reliable, can handle large website.
Some framework I have in my mind :
1. Spring
2. Play
3. Spark

Please suggest me.

You can achieve this with any framework. You can also achieve it with no framework.

This question really doesn't have an answer. It's like asking which spanner set is best for building a Toyota car.

Hi Tim,
I am searching it from few hours and a bit confused in between Spring MVC and Play framework. Can you please suggest me something ?

What, specifically, has you confused? If you have narrowed down the search to those two, then you must have an idea of what you want the framework to be able to do - can you tell us what those requirements are? That's crucial information for us to recommend anything.

My concept is something like this :
On my website people will post blog(what kind of blogs it is confidential), the post with similar tags will be merged together. Like every social media website, my website will contain user profiles, upvotes, personal messages kind of features. The user of websites will see what the tags they followed. Kind of idea I have in my  mind.
I started learning spring MVC and then came to know that linkedin has shifted to PLAY framework from SPRING for some obvious reason

I've used springboot with hibernate, JSP and websockets for some time and find it well supported by the community, very flexible and extensible.
But what you choose depends on what your needs are. If all you will be doing is sending ajax requests from your frontend to your backend with some DB persistence then any of them will work.
