What is Dropwizard?

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.

What is Finatra?

At Twitter, Finagle provides the building blocks for most of the code written on the JVM. It has long-served as Twitter's extensible, protocol-agnostic, highly-scalable RPC framework.

What is Tornado?

By using non-blocking network I/O, Tornado can scale to tens of thousands of open connections, making it ideal for long polling, WebSockets, and other applications that require a long-lived connection to each user.

      What are some alternatives to Dropwizard, Finatra, and Tornado?
      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.
      Dropwizard Metrics
      It is a Java library which gives you insight into what your code does in production. It provides a powerful toolkit of ways to measure the behavior of critical components in your production environment. It provides you with full-stack visibility.
      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.

      SpreadServe uses TornadoTornado

      SpreadServe's RealTimeWebServer is built in Tornado. Spreadsheets loaded into SpreadServeEngine instances are projected into browsers using Tornado. Server side recalcs are pushed to the browser using web sockets.

      setup an api for a client with tornado backend. incredibly fast and lightweight. unfortunately breaks down when using third party libraries which block internally.

      Tornado with Async/Await coroutines provided in Python 3.5 make up for an excellent stack for a micro-service.
