Groovy, man

James Strachan is working on a new dynamically typed scripting language for the Java platform, Groovy.

I can't say that I understand James' motivation here. Why not just use Jython? Jython's quite behind Python though it is the closest to what I want right now, he says. It's true that the most recent Jython release is equivalent to C Python 2.1, two major releases old. But Python 2.1 was great - it's just that Python 2.3 is better. What does he want that Jython doesn't deliver?

Now, J*, that was a good idea.
