Is the book including any introduction to Groovy or is only the Grails framework treated?

Hi Roger,

Chapter 4 is dedicated to introducing Groovy. The aim is to get a Java developer comfortable enough with Groovy to continue on with the rest of the book. The following topics are covered:

  • The similarities to Java
  • How to install and run Groovy
  • Groovy data structures
  • Closures
  • Plain old Groovy objects
  • Metaprogramming
  • Builders


  • Thanks,
    Jon.
