I'm involved with a bunch of greenfield projects using both - Play for the frontend tier and Dropwizard for supporting REST services. Play has a lot more support for building web UIs (compiled type-safe templates), whereas Jersey is IMO a much better model for RESTful APIs.
Play is better for Scala, and for dealing with asynchronous stuff (Dropwizard is stuck in a JEE single-blocking-thread mindset)

I'm interested in knowing pros and cons of both frameworks. Would anyone like to give an opinion?
I've worked with Dropwizard before and now I'm doing a 'hello world' with Play. The technology stack is java based at the moment (with thoughts of easily move to a jvm based language), noSQL for persistance and D3.js in the front end.
