Interesting video from Ken Kousen on how to use Groovy to make your Java life easier i.e. extending your Java with Groovy instead of replacing it: http://www.infoq.com/presentations/Improve-Your-Java-with-Groovy

Here's the short blurb:

Ken Kousen demoes 10 cases when he says it’s better to use Groovy: XML (and JSON), JDBC, I/O (Files), Collections, Closures, Builders, AST Transformations, Meta-programming, Spock, and Gradle.


It's 90 minutes long, so plenty to learn...

I agree to the fact the parsing XML is very easier in Groovy, even collections and closures. Havent tried other features.
