    Assignee:     (was: Daniel Sun)

> Support `var` keyword of Java10
> -------------------------------
>                 Key: GROOVY-8498
>                 URL:
>             Project: Groovy
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>            Reporter: Daniel Sun
>            Priority: Major
>             Fix For: 3.0.0-alpha-2, 2.6.0-alpha-4
> This is to provide compatibility with:
> (Java 10)
> (targeted for Java 11)
> Java 10 provides var to allow reduced ceremony by avoiding manifest declaration of types
for local variables for cases where type inferencing can be supported. Groovy already does
this with "def" and has it's own approach for type inferencing within type-checked/compile
static code. With this in mind, it seems to make most sense for Groovy to have "var" as an
alias for "def" rather than closely mimic only the use cases allowed by Java.
