Groovy looks as another scripting language. But it takes advantage of to be a son of Java.

Nobody denies about the fact of the large set of java libraries available to internet: networking, processing management, distributed systems, virtualization and so on.

Groovy is a scripting language that takes the best of two worlds: huge set of libraries and increase expressiveness of the Java language. Its first stable release to january 2007, asides count with an excellent companion book Groovy in Action becomes a Groovy an excellent prototyping tool.
