Description Scala is a programming language. It is both object-oriented (think inheritance, methods, ...) and functional (think closures). It blends a number of modern language features, while maintaining close compatibility with Java. 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. Rapid application development platform
