With the release of Groovy-Eclipse 2.0.1, we have produced compelling dynamic language support for Groovy in Eclipse. This tool support includes tight integration with JDT, type inferencing throughout, and extensibility for custom DSLs such as Grails.
In this talk, we will explore the power of Groovy-Eclipse in helping to create Groovy and mixed Groovy-Java projects in Eclipse. Through the use of a few simple examples. We will then discuss the internals, including JDT integration, refactoring support, and the inferencing engine. The last part of the talk will show a simple example of extensibility for custom Groovy DSLs.
This talk describes the tooling side of Groovy-Eclipse, please see our related talk "Extending the Eclipse Java Compiler to integrate support for other languages: lessons learned from Groovy Eclipse" that details our extensions to the JDT compiler for multi-language support.
