More than any other comparable book, this is a feast for the mind that marks a significant landmark in inverting the rules of a programming platform.
I cannot overemphasize the coming importance of Groovy on the Java platform, not just in web development, but everywhere. Just try it already. You'll "get it." Just trust me and do it!
Groovy in Action is a first rate introduction and reference, and you really do need a book for this language. I don't recommend trying to go it alone with online reference material, though there is plenty there to give you a taste of why Groovy is about to become your new favorite language.
Read the other reviews. I'm not going to repeat a bunch of stuff here. But whatever you do, TRY GROOVY. You will quickly come to wonder how you ever got along without it.
to one that combines elegantly dynamic with static features, and a superb execution speed, competent with Java/Scala, when
static compilation is used. Also, Groovy improved on the dynamic compilation performance dramatically with its recent versions.
The book is the definite guide on the Groovy programming language, it covers plenty of features, with excellent technical writing and
presentation. The new edition of the book describes clearly and extensively all the main new features of the Groovy language.
I strongly recommend the book, not only to the readers that like to learn Groovy, butt also to all computer professionals that that practice with
programming languages and the like, since the Groovy approaches and solutions have to offer a lot to any modern programmer.
