Groovy Programming Language

Once upon a time, I wrote about the Death of Java, which was spawned by many developer's excitement with the re-discovery of scripting languages … er, I mean dynamic languages. I must say, I've been re-invigorated with programming in general and Java in particular by using Groovy.

The following are some of the articles I've written about Groovy:
