Cocoa (OS X) vs Dropwizard: What are the differences?
Developers describe Cocoa (OS X) as "The Cocoa frameworks consist of libraries, APIs, and runtimes that form the development layer for all of OS X". Much of Cocoa is implemented in Objective-C, an object-oriented language that is compiled to run at incredible speed, yet employs a truly dynamic runtime making it uniquely flexible. Because Objective-C is a superset of C, it is easy to mix C and even C++ into your Cocoa applications. On the other hand, Dropwizard is detailed as "Java framework for developing ops-friendly, high-performance, RESTful web services". Dropwizard is a sneaky way of making fast Java web applications. Dropwizard pulls together stable, mature libraries from the Java ecosystem into a simple, light-weight package that lets you focus on getting things done.
Cocoa (OS X) and Dropwizard can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Great community " is the top reason why over 2 developers like Cocoa (OS X), while over 23 developers mention "Quick and easy to get a new http service going" as the leading cause for choosing Dropwizard.
Dropwizard is an open source tool with 7.25K GitHub stars and 3.04K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Dropwizard's open source repository on GitHub.
