Dropwizard vs Spring Boot: What are the differences?
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; Spring Boot: Create Spring-powered, production-grade applications and services with absolute minimum fuss. 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.
Dropwizard and Spring Boot can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Quick and easy to get a new http service going" is the primary reason why developers consider Dropwizard over the competitors, whereas "Powerful and handy" was stated as the key factor in picking Spring Boot.
Dropwizard and Spring Boot are both open source tools. It seems that Spring Boot with 39.8K GitHub stars and 25.8K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Dropwizard with 7.25K GitHub stars and 3.04K GitHub forks.
MIT, Intuit, and PedidosYa are some of the popular companies that use Spring Boot, whereas Dropwizard is used by Yammer, Opower, and ClassPass. Spring Boot has a broader approval, being mentioned in 333 company stacks & 615 developers stacks; compared to Dropwizard, which is listed in 51 company stacks and 12 developer stacks.
