Don't know if I've mentioned it here before, but I've been reminded of just how cool Groovy is.

well its just another language to program instead of java, and it creates java bytecode just like java. so think of it as an alternate to java. all your groovy programs will run just like java programs.. i.e they use the same jvm.

it also says that this language is a aglie language.. what this basically means its a very flexible language from RAD to full fledge.

java on the other hand is not a RAD language.

Ruby interacting with Java already exists, in the form of JRuby. IBM DeveloperWorks plans to cover it next month. Smile

But yes, Groovy takes a lot of ideas from Ruby. Of course, a lot of this also probably comes from the fact that both borrow ideas from Smalltalk.
