Summary

Cedric Champeau discusses the concept of traits introduced by Groovy 2.3. Traits look like interfaces, but allow the developer to add both implementation and state into it. It introduces multiple inheritance in the language while avoiding the diamond problem. Traits will let you rethink the way you design APIs in Groovy, by favoriting composition of behaviors.
