Groovy Ecosystem: Griffon

Groovy is the fastest growing JVM language out there. It might be because it is so easy for Java developers to pick it up, but also because there’s an increasing number of projects and libraries that make use of Groovy as the starting point. In this session we’ll cover Griffon.

Griffon is an application framework for developing desktop applications in the JVM, with Groovy being the primary language of choice. Inspired by Grails, Griffon follows the Convention over Configuration paradigm, paired with an intuitive MVC architecture and a command line interface. Griffon also follows the spirit of the Swing Application Framework (JSR 296), it defines a simple yet powerful application life cycle and event publishing mechanism.
