"Groovy in Action" is a comprehensive guide to Groovy programming, introducing Java developers to the new dynamic features that Groovy provides. To bring you "Groovy in Action," Manning again went to the source by working with a team of expert authors including both members and the Manager of the Groovy Project team. The result is the true definitive guide to the new Groovy language.

"Groovy in Action" introduces Groovy by example, presenting lots of reusable code while explaining the underlying concepts.
