I disagree with the point of using Spring for complex web application especially if you want to move into micro services architecture. It only adds complex configurations due to the poor documentation and Java isn't the best language for building web apps in my opinion.
Did you try frameworks like moleculerJS or Go micro?

Well, Java is used for building a lot of web applications(quite successfully) and IMO has the best ecosystem to do so. Also not everyone should be doing microservices since they are trendy, there is a lot issues in those which is a whole different topic. And Spring is perfectly suitable if you want to do microservices.

I haven't tried the frameworks you mentioned, will do when I find the time and will update the post if it changes my opinion.
