Jeff Scott Brown discusses the dynamic runtime nature of Groovy which sets it apart from standard Java and makes it a great language for building dynamic applications for the Java Platform. The metaprogramming capabilities offered by the language provide everything that an application development team needs to build systems that are far more capable than their all Java counterparts.
