To be honest development in SpringBoot is a pieces of cake, what do you think ?

Hmm...from what perspective? Because I think that would be relative to what you're trying to accomplish. I personally think express is friendlier, for example in Auth/Security...setting up ACL or permission based access in spring boot can be quite a pain 😭

Yeah that security implementation is very easy in express but the speed of dev is much fater in SpringBoot

Really? How come? I'm of the opinion that Spring Boot would require a bigger code base, because of stricter java language rules, and definitions...with express, however, especially using modern ECMA Script, everything is very concise

Spring boot can provide CRUD with just one class file for the schema. That's the advantage.
