    pros, cons and recent comments

    Python is not a JVM language and hence cannot be seamlessly mixed with existing Java code, which is a major feature of Groovy. A similarity between the two languages is that both can be used for scripting, though.

    It is wide-spread, highly stable and very flexible. You have good support around all over the internet and tons of 3rd party libraries you can use. Java is IMHO just THE programming language for people who want to be productive {??}.
