Groovy is a superset of Java programming language and should soon be available on Google Apps platform (appspot). Google Apps announced yesterday that they are supporting Java as a development language.
Looking forward to my invitation. Got JDK and Eclipse ready. I find this to be an excellent step forward in bringing forward both Web as a development platform and Java as a programming language. Finally some strongly-typed language gets more popular and available online.
Groovy goes a step further by adding meta-programming features. This includes dynamic typing so I'm interesting how that is going to work out.
Groovy is like a super version of Java. It can leverage Java's enterprise capabilities but also has cool productivity features like closures, builders and dynamic typing. If you are a developer, tester or script guru, you have to love Groovy.
