My organization is fairly conservative (we are still using Java 1.4!) I was quite keen on using Groovy as it compatible with Java without the need for 'translators'.
I was met with the response 'Groovy is yet another fad' when trying to implement Groovy in small internal applications.
Do you think it is yet another fad Venkat? How do you think if I gave them your book (or a book that may suggest) to read it will give them more information about Groovy as to not dismiss it so easily?
The developers are on my side of the fence after reading Groovy recipes.
Praveena, the first step is to convince ourselves. Then we can convince others. Rather than saying it is good, useful, or makes me productive, show that it does. Use it in places where you can clearly see advantages. Do a prototype of such pieces and demonstrate and illustrate what you have gained. Once people see real examples useful on your own project, they are convinced.
