Rezension bezieht sich auf: Groovy in Action (Taschenbuch)
Your passion is programming? You're fluent in Java? Then you'll love GINA - akronym for "Groovy in Action". And you'll put the Ruby-Pickaxe aside....
Dierk and his co-authors did a truly marvelous job: clear structure, highly (and I really mean HIGHLY) motivating language plus the best language-intro I read for a very long time... (and I've read quite a few during the last 20 years, believe me...)
GINA is made up from three parts: language intro, library intro and practical tipps, each part approx. 5 chapters.
Lets start with the language intro: After reading a few pages I could not stop - a real page-turner. Brilliant examples - they use java's assert-statement to make the intention of every example crystal-clear, a pattern which I have never encountered before - congratulations to this idea and its perfect realization throughout the book!
In the library part you'll find intro to groovy builders, database and XML development and the integration of Groovy in "conventional" java programms. Imho the authors again did a great job in choosing proper samples and making them transparent to us readers.
Finally, more than 100 pages on everyday solutions - a nice selection.
My personal summary: Go, get it! I liked it better than Pick-Axe (which I really adore!). The only other in quality is "Practical Common Lisp" by Peter Seibel (too sad that nobody uses Lisp these days...) - all other
programming books I know really fall behind.
