Hi ranchers,

I have not learned Groovy. I only know a little bit. I am just wondering what the benefits of using Groovy are since I know that there is no difference whatsoever between writing a Groovy class or a Java class. Can anyone share a little bit of his experiences?
Thanks.

It seems like others have had the same question here. To sum up their answers, Groovy can:
(1) increase productivity
(2) give you dynamic capabilities where Java can't
(3) allow you to write less code (which may be the same as increased productivity)
