    So he tells us to replace Servlets and the tried and proven JEE infrastructure with their hastily assembled proprietary framework?

    Dropwizard is pretty much combination of proven/stable frameworks used to develop JVM web services... it is no "proprietary framework"! Many people are already using these frameworks in an ad-hoc manner, so this is a neat work to help putting these frameworks together in a fast and consistent manner.
