One of the major advantages of Groovy is that you can leverage existing Java APIs very easily: you can use them in Groovy just like you would in Java. However, Groovy is a perfect fit for DSLs and it’s possible to make those APIs rock: why would you be obliged to use them in a Java fashion if we can build Groovy APIs for them? In this session, we will take an existing Java API and try to make it Groovy step by step, introducing you to various DSL building techniques in Groovy. After this talk, you should be able to build your own Groovy wrappers around existing Java APIs and offer them to the community!
