Hi Author,

Yesterady I started to explore Groovy and the same day I bought the Groovy in Action and it looks as a good starting point. My question to you here is

(1) How do you compare your book with Groovy in Action

(2) Up to what extent does the book makes us familiar with Groovy? After reading your book, can I start using Groovy for my enterprise web apps?

(3) Does your book cover any Groovy specific frameworks like we have for Ruby (Ruby on Rails)?

Very much eagar to know on the third point.

1. Here are discussions on this topic:

2. You don't have to wait to start using Groovy after reading my book. You can start much sooner.

3. No, I wanted the book to focus on Groovy and its language capabilities. So, I do not discuss any Groovy frameworks. It is a Groovy book, not a Groovy frameworks book.

Thanks Venkat. I'm anyways concerned about using Groovy for a small web app that I'm building now. I'm planning to use Groovy code for the bus logic. Maybe even I'll model a java bean as a groovy bean. So was just curious to know if there existed already any frameworks that I can uue.
I agree. Here's the link:
