This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Update: the above does work, I had an error in bootstrap.groovy that was keeping the schema from being generated in thed DB.

Although I've only used jython much before groovy.
