Hi,

This may be out of scope for the book, but I'm curious to know if there is (will be) support for alternative JVM languages on Android? Groovy specifically.

Regards

Paul

No, I was thinking about actually developing android applications using alternative languages.

Interesting link thought, thanks.

Good question. I cannot comment specifically on Groovy, however I would recommend that you search for Android Scripting Engine or SL4A is the current name
