Dropwizard vs Volt: 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; Volt: A ruby web framework where your ruby runs on both server and client. Volt is a ruby web framework where your ruby code runs on both the server and the client (via opal.) The DOM automatically update as the user interacts with the page. Page state can be stored in the URL, if the user hits a URL directly, the HTML will first be rendered on the server for faster load times and easier indexing by search engines.

Dropwizard and Volt can be categorized 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 "Handlebars" was stated as the key factor in picking Volt.

Dropwizard and Volt are both open source tools. It seems that Dropwizard with 7.25K GitHub stars and 3.04K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Volt with 3.3K GitHub stars and 209 GitHub forks.

    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.
