Description First introduced in Flash Player 9, ActionScript 3 is an object-oriented programming (OOP) language based on ECMAScript. It is compiled and run inside the Adobe Flash Player runtime. Ruby focuses on simplicity and productivity, whilst being natural to read and easy to write. Groovy is an object-oriented programming language for the Java platform. It is a dynamic language and can be used as a scripting language. Groovy uses a Java-like bracket syntax. It is dynamically compiled to Java Virtual Machine (JVM) bytecode and interoperates with other Java code and libraries.
