Groovy 2.3.7 / 2.4.0 Beta 3

An agile dynamic language for the Java Platform
Groovy is a free, dynamic and agile language for the Java Virtual Machine.

Groovy supports Domain-Specific Languages and other compact syntax so your code becomes easy to read and maintain. It makes writing shell and build scripts easy with its powerful processing primitives, OO abilities and an Ant DSL

Groovy increases developer productivity by reducing scaffolding code when developing web, GUI, database or console applications. It also simplifies testing by supporting unit testing and mocking out-of-the-box

Groovy seamlessly integrates with all existing Java classes and libraries. It compiles straight to Java bytecode so you can use it anywhere you can use Java.

Main features:

  • builds upon the strengths of Java but has additional power features inspired by languages like Python, Ruby and Smalltalk
  • makes modern programming features available to Java developers with almost-zero learning curve
  • supports Domain-Specific Languages and other compact syntax so your code becomes easy to read and maintain
  • makes writing shell and build scripts easy with its powerful processing primitives, OO abilities and an Ant DSL
  • increases developer productivity by reducing scaffolding code when developing web, GUI, database or console applications
  • simplifies testing by supporting unit testing and mocking out-of-the-box
  • seamlessly integrates with all existing Java objects and libraries
  • compiles straight to Java bytecode so you can use it anywhere you can use Java
