What will a Groovy DSL look like in 2016

A session at SpringOne 2GX 2015

Wednesday 16th September, 2015

12:45pm to 2:15pm (EST)

Groovy Advanced Track

Groovy has been a language of great interest to build internal domain specific languages (DSLs) for years now. But what will an "idiomatic Groovy DSL" in 2016? If you were to write a DSL today, what would you use? Runtime metaprogramming? Builders? Static compilation? Type checking extensions?

In this talk, we will illustrate what we think is a modern DSL written in Groovy, syntactically speaking, but also implementation wise. How you can improve the syntax of your DSL, its performance, or user experience.
