The Road from Java to Groovy (Lightning-talk)

The road from Java to Groovy would be perfect if all you had to do is rename a .java file to .groovy and recompile. However, the reality is, the road is not perfectly smooth and can be filled with speed bumps, curves and speed limits.

This talk is your road map around these impediments and hindrances that can slow your migration to Groovy. It will provide solutions, workarounds and best practices to quickly get you on the fast lane. Along the way, we’ll cover some useful Groovy idioms that can replace more verbose Java equivalents.

Topics to be covered include: Cruising I-95: Interop Highway Caution: Sharp keyword corner ahead Pavement potholes: Groovy’s missing parts Avoiding idiomatic collisions Moving into the fastlane GPS: Tools and techniques to avoid dangerous territory
