Dropwizard vs Trailblazer: 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; Trailblazer: A new architecture for Rails. Trailblazer is a thin layer on top of Rails. It gently enforces encapsulation, an intuitive code structure and gives you an object-oriented architecture. In a nutshell: Trailblazer makes you write logicless models that purely act as data objects, don't contain callbacks, nested attributes, validations or domain logic. It removes bulky controllers and strong_parameters by supplying additional layers to hold that code and completely replaces helpers.

Dropwizard and Trailblazer can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"Quick and easy to get a new http service going" is the top reason why over 23 developers like Dropwizard, while over 3 developers mention "Trailblazer allows creating sane, large apps in Rails" as the leading cause for choosing Trailblazer.

Dropwizard and Trailblazer are both open source tools. Dropwizard with 7.25K GitHub stars and 3.04K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Trailblazer with 2.91K GitHub stars and 129 GitHub forks.

What are some alternatives to Dropwizard and Trailblazer?
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.
