Groovin’ in Java

March 7, 2012

I’ve just been watching an interesting presentation on using Groovy as an additional toolkit in Java.  Groovy excels in handling XML, File I/O and JDBC, as well as offering good support for Collections and Closures (as regular readers of this blog already know!).  The type of things you typically need to do day-in-day-out for your regular job.

If you want to learn more about what you can do with Groovy in the real world take a look at the presentation on InfoQ – Improve Your Java with Groovy

The presenter, Ken Kousen, also has a good blog with some very useful information on using Groovy for doing regular & proper programming tasks – the sort of thing it’s really intended for – not what I do here!

He’s got a book in the works, Making Java Groovy, which should be coming out in late 2012.
