Upcoming goodness with Groovy 2.0

Guillaume Laforge has provided a recent update to what we can expect to see in the upcoming Groovy 2.0 release.

I’m sure it’d be more enjoyable live at GR8Conf, but a great read all the same.

Some things I’m interested in:

  • Memoization - could have some interesting uses
  • JSON - have used Jackson previously, but built-in is great!
  • New AST Transformatons (@ToString, @TupleConstructor, @ThreadInterrupt) - even more syntactic sugar
  • Multicatch - cuts out even more verbosity
  • InvokeDynamic performance improvements
