Welcome to the Groovy User Guide. We hope you find it useful.
Welcome on board the Groovy flight. Before proceeding through the content of this tutorial, please make sure to fasten your seat belt, before we take off to higher levels of grooviness...
This page is intended to get you started with Groovy, following a trail of a few tutorial labs on various topics mainly oriented towards typical use of scripting languages for data crunching or text manipulation.
Graham Miller, a Groovy affictionado, has been teaching a class of business on data crunching. And he was kind enough to contribute back to the Groovy project this great set of educational material to help you learn Groovy, using some nice examples to massage, summarize and analyze data - a task for which Groovy is a quite good fit.
The topics covered are about Groovy basics, text parsing, regular expressions, SQL, and web-scraping:
- Getting started
- Code as data; handling closure
- Classes and Objects
- Regular expressions basics
- Capturing groups
- Groovy SQL
