  • is an agile and dynamic language for the Java Virtual Machine
  • builds upon the strengths of Java but has additional power features inspired by languages like Python, Ruby and Smalltalk
  • makes modern programming features available to Java developers with almost-zero learning curve
  • supports Domain-Specific Languages and other compact syntax so your code becomes easy to read and maintain
  • makes writing shell and build scripts easy with its powerful processing primitives, OO abilities and an Ant DSL
  • increases developer productivity by reducing scaffolding code when developing web, GUI, database or console applications
  • simplifies testing by supporting unit testing and mocking out-of-the-box
  • seamlessly integrates with all existing Java objects and libraries
  • compiles straight to Java bytecode so you can use it anywhere you can use Java

  • Taken from here.

    Thank you,

    Groovy is fully object-oriented (even more than Java is).

    Groovy provides dynamic programming capabilities that can be used to achieve effects that are comparable to AOP. Additionally, you can use any Java AOP framework with Groovy (until know I have not yet seen a need for that).

    I agree. Here's the link:
