I 2003/2004 having a dynamic version of Java was great stuff. Also it allowed
for less verbosity. Time has moved on as has Java (finally). And there is now
Kotlin. Is the role of Groovy today to be the dynamic Java trying hard to have
statically type bits, or is it to be its own language with its own
evolutionary path?
