Subject Re: Groovy 2.5 CliBuilder article (request for feedback)

I’ll change “annotating properties” to “annotating fields”. 

About “getter methods for interfaces” and “setter methods for implementation classes”,
I need to think about this some more but the distinction is important. 

The annotations can be a bit “magic” for users who don’t know the details of what happens
under the hood. 

Without clear documentation users may try to use the annotations on the “getter” method
of an implementation class. 

I’ll try to improve the wording but the analogy with JavaBeans is actually helpful rather
than confusing, I think. Why do you think this analogy should be avoided?


(Shameless plug) Every java main() method deserves
