Dropwizard vs PurpleJS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Dropwizard 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. On the other hand, PurpleJS is detailed as "An alternative to Node.js for Java projects". PurpleJS is a simple and capable framework for creating performant web applications without leaving Javascript. It is created in Java to give the flexibility and performance Java provides. It's optional to use Java but it's required if you need to embed PurpleJS in existing applications.

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

Dropwizard and PurpleJS are both open source tools. It seems that Dropwizard with 7.25K GitHub stars and 3.04K forks on GitHub has more adoption than PurpleJS with 408 GitHub stars and 19 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to Dropwizard and PurpleJS?
    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.
