Darryl Taft has a nice chat with James Gosling.
He talks about many topics, including Groovy. In general he likes it, but wishes it was a bit more daring. He even had a list of questions / thoughts for the Groovy team, and hopefully James will ask him for the list. I bet there are some interesting items!
I think Groovy is pretty interesting. I think they’re being fairly conservative. I think they could be a little more outlandish and get a little more interesting.
remember sort of reading through their syntax list and saying, “Oh, why didn’t you do this and why didn’t you do that?” There were some things about the way that they did sort of the equivalence of declarations and some things about the way they did case switch statements
