    Spring Boot
    Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run". We take an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries so you can get started with minimum fuss. Most Spring Boot applications need very little Spring configuration.
    Play
    Play Framework makes it easy to build web applications with Java & Scala. Play is based on a lightweight, stateless, web-friendly architecture. Built on Akka, Play provides predictable and minimal resource consumption (CPU, memory, threads) for highly-scalable applications.
    Spring
    A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.
    Node.js
    Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
    ASP.NET
    .NET is a developer platform made up of tools, programming languages, and libraries for building many different types of applications.

    Reviews of Dropwizard and Fat-Free
    Review ofFat-FreeFat-Free

    This compact framework provided me flexibility. I can implement my own design pattern either MVC or something else. What caught my attention the most was its built-in ORM that can accommodate SQL and NoSql database. That means I can have my MongoSql and SQL queries written by those compatible raw sql statements but still creates ORM models the same way as nosql. Consider for example: $user=new DB\SQL\Mapper($db,'users');// for sql db $user=new DB\Mongo\Mapper($db,'users'); // for mongo db then $user = $user->load('id = 1');

    Thanks to its high modularity, I can add more fat to my liking. There's also Cortex ORM f3 extension which handles join tables. Also, handles sessions, routing, and config with ease and let you organize them neatly. That's just a few of the handful features without much weight and with fast performance. One drawback is smaller community, but didn't disappoint me.
