Dropwizard vs Mojolicious: What are the differences?

What is Dropwizard? 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.

What is Mojolicious? Perl real-time web framework. Back in the early days of the web, many people learned Perl because of a wonderful Perl library called CGI. It was simple enough to get started without knowing much about the language and powerful enough to keep you going, learning by doing was much fun. While most of the techniques used are outdated now, the idea behind it is not. Mojolicious is a new attempt at implementing this idea using state of the art technology.

Dropwizard and Mojolicious belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.

"Quick and easy to get a new http service going" is the primary reason why developers consider Dropwizard over the competitors, whereas "Open source" was stated as the key factor in picking Mojolicious.

Dropwizard and Mojolicious are both open source tools. Dropwizard with 7.25K GitHub stars and 3.04K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Mojolicious with 2.12K GitHub stars and 498 GitHub forks.

Yammer, Opower, and ClassPass are some of the popular companies that use Dropwizard, whereas Mojolicious is used by Binary.com, WebbyLab, and MynewMD. Dropwizard has a broader approval, being mentioned in 51 company stacks & 12 developers stacks; compared to Mojolicious, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to Dropwizard and Mojolicious?
    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.
