    Play Framework

    Is there a specific reason why you're learning Spring? Because it's probably the biggest Java-based enterprise framework you can find. That of course has its benefits in the job market, but it isn't really the best choice to get your feet wet in Java backend development. If your primary goal is to start developing REST APIs or web applications in Java/Scala, then I would suggest the Play Framework. It's more lightweight and in design more closely related to other web frameworks.
