This FAQ hopes to answer common questions for users of Groovy

What is Groovy?

  • Groovy is trying to provide a high level language (like Ruby, Python or Dylan) that maps cleanly to Java bytecode.
  • It needs to work with Java objects, and the root of all the object trees is java.lang.Object.
  • The syntax will be Java friendly, but doesn't have to be backwards compatible.
  • Groovy will sit on top of J2SE.
