Hi.
Python and Ruby are so much powerful and capable scripting languages.
Does Groovy has the same power and features as Python & Ruby or it just provides a simplified syntax around Java's ones?
Thanks.

I would say that Groovy is pretty comparable to Ruby in power. Both seem a bit more powerful than Python to me, but it was several years ago that I looked seriously at python, and I haven't been keeping up with the language, so my opinion may not count for much there. Anyway, Groovy is certainly more than just simplified syntax for Java's features.
