Groovy is a dynamic, object-oriented programming language that is designed to run on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). It is often used as a scripting language for Java applications and provides a number of features that make it easier to work with Java code.
Groovy is similar to Java in syntax and structure, but it includes additional features such as closures, dynamic typing, and operator overloading, which make it more expressive and flexible. It also provides a simplified syntax for working with collections and other data structures.
Groovy is often used in the development of web applications, as well as in automation and scripting tasks. It is frequently used in the development of Gradle build scripts, which are commonly used for building and managing Java projects.
Groovy is an open-source language that is actively developed and maintained by the Apache Software Foundation. It is available under the Apache License, which means that it can be freely used, modified, and distributed by anyone.
