We found that moving our Swing app to java 8 helped with a few UI bugs (mainly on OSX from
memory), but more importantly JavaFX support is much better.

I find the Java lamba/stream syntax messy compared to Groovy's equivalents, so I can't say
I've played with them much yet. I've spent quite a bit of time inside Groovy (either on its
own, or through Gradle) and liking it a lot. I'm quite interested in the intersection between
Groovy and JavaFX but haven't had time to do much with it yet.
