This e-book is divided into 3 components. First one is ready language, moment is ready complex beneficial properties which coming with Groovy distribution, and 3rd comprises a few tricks and courses, which may assist in daily paintings with Groovy.
Cause, this e-book is set whatever new to me, is from In motion" sequence and in addition i'm in motion" with my venture, i have learn (and nonetheless interpreting) it with in motion" variety. What it capability? It capacity, that during given time, i am analyzing this portion of booklet which precisely I already desire, rather than interpreting it page-by-page. Now i will be able to say that with this booklet this sort of studying is excitement. Easy-reading language (this is essential to me, as i am not local English speaker) mixed with easy-understanding examples makes studying approximately gains of Groovy rather effortless, attention-grabbing and stress-free. excellent sectioning makes leaping via e-book (in case of taking a look ahead or backward in our personal studying strategy) content material additionally easy.
What approximately content material of book's half? i have learn all of first half, reason realizing beneficial properties of language is a basement of utilizing it, and the single note which i will say approximately this half is Great!". It comprises precisely what's had to knowing the way to use Groovy, what's attainable to do with language, and the way. After analyzing it i have not virtually any issues of knowing extra complex examples (found in different elements of the booklet, or within the net) at language point (logical point is different tale ;)).
Second half I learn extra selective, so there are a few sections at which i have took just a glance (e.g. like such a lot a part of bankruptcy approximately integrating). yet normally, no matter what i have learn it really is nonetheless in excessive point. even if occasionally it used to be fairly demanding to appreciate how whatever works with no little aid of exterior fabrics. i feel, that during a few locations there can be extra examples or extra certain clarification, particularly in bankruptcy approximately developers (This is strong and worthy characteristic of Groovy, yet purely examining and making examples from publication isn't sufficient to stable realizing theirs proposal, I think).
And no less than, the final, 3rd half. To be sincere, I in basic terms take a quick examine the main a part of it. Why? reason chapters are very particular. Cheat sheets or tips'n'tricks may be (and they're) worthwhile commonly, yet complex home windows scripting or unit trying out utilizing JUnit isn't really anything vital for me (as a long way as i do not script home windows or now not use JUnit), so I simply took a glance, say hmmm... okay..." and browse whatever different (but if somebody wishes it, i feel those chapters can be handy).
So, to sum up. many years in the past Phil Collins sang approximately groovy type of love, at the present time i will be able to say that fab is more or less love. And this ebook is facts of this significant feeling (especially first parts), in spite of its small weak point, which, i'm hoping, may be polished in incoming moment edition.
P.S. the largest weak spot of this e-book? it is not in Polish, yet perhaps in future... Who knows...
