Groovy: A Threat to Java?

, Mar 18, 2004

Bill de hÓra, Cedric Beust, and various more or less clueless folks on TSS add their comments to the Groovy JSR debate.

I hope that the JCP executive committee will accept it — in my opinion, Groovy would be simply a great addition to the JVM platform. Having a powerful dynamic language with access to all of the platform libs, sanctioned by a (semi-)official standard, would propel the concepts from Ruby, {P|J}ython and LISP to the mainstream, something that would really be great for the industry.
