Groovy Scripting

groovy scripting online training

Groovy is a dynamic scripting and programming language for the Java platform. It combines the dynamic features of modern scripting languages such as Ruby and Python with familiar Java syntax. To quote one of the Groovy developers: Groovy is what Java would have been if it had been created in the 21st century. This course introduces the Java developer to the Groovy language.vGroovy is an object-oriented programming language for the Java platform. It is a dynamic language with features similar to those of Python, Ruby, Perl, and Smalltalk. It can be used as a scripting language for the Java Platform, is dynamically compiled to Java Virtual Machine (JVM) bytecode, and interoperates with other Java code and libraries. Groovy uses a Java-like curly-bracket syntax. Most Java code is also syntactically valid Groovy.
