-{groovy-www}[Groovy] is an agile and dynamic language for the Java Virtual Machine. It builds
upon the strengths of Java, but has additional power features inspired by languages like Python,
Ruby and Smalltalk.
+{groovy-www}[Groovy] is a powerful, optionally typed and dynamic language, with static-typing
and static compilation capabilities, for the Java platform aimed at multiplying developers’
productivity thanks to a concise, familiar and easy to learn syntax.
-Groovy makes modern programming features available to Java developers with almost-zero learning
curve as well as supports Domain-Specific Languages and other compact syntax so your code
becomes easy to read and maintain.
-Groovy makes writing shell and build scripts easy with its powerful processing primitives,
OO abilities and an Ant DSL.
-It also increases developer productivity by reducing scaffolding code when developing web,
GUI, database or console applications. Groovy simplifies testing by supporting unit testing
and mocking out-of-the-box. Groovy also seamlessly integrates with all existing Java classes
and libraries and compiles straight to Java bytecode so you can use it anywhere you can use
+It integrates smoothly with any Java program, and immediately delivers to your application
powerful features, including scripting capabilities, Domain-Specific Language authoring, runtime
and compile-time meta-programming and functional programming.
