Hi!

Can I expect the same level of responsiveness from a user interface developed in Groovy/Griffon (compared to Java/Swing)?
Is the Groovy code compiled to byte code?

Regards

Fredrik Johansson

Hi Fredrik,

Yes. All Groovy code is compiled to .class files before launching the application.

As a matter of fact all Groovy based artifacts inherit/extend the same basic classes you would use if you choose Java as your main language when developing a Griffon application. The Griffon compiler is smart enough to weave the required types given each artifacts' placement, naming convention and responsibilities.

Views built with the SwingBuilder DSL behave in the same way as plain Java views. What you gain is a declarative way to express the UI hierarchy plus a more concise syntax.

Cheers,
Andres

Yes, it's just Swing underneath. Griffon does not provide a new UI toolkit for you to learn.
Rather it provides the building blocks for creating applications without red tape
