Groovy Language approved as JSR

JSR 241 has been approved as the specification for the Groovy language.

Groovy is an OO language similar to features found in Ruby, Python and Smalltalk, that compiles to Java bytecode and can be executed on a regular Java VM.

The goal of Groovy is to produce a scripting language that can provide RAD development features and fill the gap in Java development, where sometimes a scripting language is needed to perform simple tasks.
