News: Groovy 1.1-beta-1 Now with Annotations Support

  1. The Groovy developer team has announced the release of Groovy 1.1-beta-1, the first alternative JVM language to support Java annotations and static imports. The features in this release ease a wide range of Groovy applications, from shell scripting to writing domain-specific languages. This release also includes several improvements and bug fixes. Support for annotations enables Groovy users to work with EJB / JPA beans, wire Google Guice with custom components, develop JBoss Seam entities, or write test with JUnit 4 or TestNG. Groovy 1.1-beta-1 is available for download from the usual location. You'll be able to download the binary distribution, the source distribution, and a zip of the online documentation (over 500 pages) and the JavaDoc.

    Other than the java docs, is there any place that we can see some code snippets of some of these features in action? Thanks -Serge-

    In the original post, I put links for some of the annotation usages, but they have been removed. Which particular features would you like to see in snippets? If that's annotations, you might have a look at my original announcement: http://docs.codehaus.org/display/GROOVY/2007/04/30
