Groovy for production.. not yet. Some of my colleagues use Groovy for few scripts and their opinion is Groovy not for production use. The implementation is not yet stable for serious applications. I have tried Groovy as well, I liked the syntax. I appreciate the work done for static compilation. But few things I wanted didn't work out of box, e.g. generating JPA meta model classes from groovy models.. Once you hit a bug, it gets difficult to progress. There might be work arounds etc but I want it to work out of box when I use it for production apps.
My opinion groovy is a great language with nice and clean syntax but the implementation is not good enough for production use.
I don't know why people say that Groovy is not production ready - it is - and it has been for some years now.
For me personally it is definitely the better Java :-)
So I ask you...
