I have been working on Groovy/Grails for past 6 months and it’s being an amazing experience. In less than 4 months time we have been able to create a new web application from scratch and deploy in production.
First, it’s Groovy which makes coding so easy that anybody will fall in love with it. A piece of code that would have taken 10 lines of code in JAVA can be written in couple of lines in groovy. On top of it is a web framework i.e. Grails, which makes web development look like child’s play. Yes, believe me or not, it’s truth that I have experienced. Atleast after working purely in java with frameworks like JSF, Struts etc., I feel so.
