Hi (Dierk? ),

I definitely see some advantages to use Groovy in certain use cases. But what I wonder is how scalable is Groovy? Will it perform in big e-commerce sites just as good as in smaller ones? Can you name any success stories?

Hi,
Groovy has inherently the same scalability characteristics as Java (note that scalability does not imply the same performance characteristics).

I have worked in Groovy Projects that outperformed C++ competitors but for you, only publicly visible projects may count. Recently, Sky, the big british TV company ported their web presence over to Grails, Groovy's web application platform. Read more under

Yeah sorry, I'm mixing up 2 different terms. But that sounds pretty good.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
