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)
