Groovy is a powerful multi-faceted programming language for the JVM.
It supports dynamic capabilities such as dynamic dispatch and optional typing as well as static-type checking and static compilation capabilities. Groovy improves developer productivity thanks to a concise, familiar and easy to learn syntax. It integrates seamlessly with any JVM program, and immediately delivers to your application powerful features, including scripting capabilities, Domain-Specific Language authoring, runtime and compile-time meta-programming and functional programming. Groovy is an integral part of the power and flexibility of the Grails framework as well as other tools like Spock, Gradle and many others.
