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.
