Example text

To do that, let me first review where Java might have some issues that need help. 1 Issues with Java A perfect storm swept through the development world in the mid- to late-1990s, which ultimately resulted in moving the primary development language from C++ to Java. Java is effectively the next-generation language in the C++ family. Its syntax shares much in common with C and C++. Language constructs that caused intermediatelevel developers problems, like memory management and pointer arithmetic, were handled automatically or removed from programmer control altogether.

Sort. 3 The closure is intended to be the implementation of the compare(String,String) method analogous to that shown in the previous Java listing. Here I show the two dummy arguments, s1 and s2, to the left of the arrow, and then use them on the right side. I provide the closure as the implementation of the Comparator interface. If the interface had several methods and I wanted to supply different implementations for each method, I would provide a map with the names of the methods as the keys and the corresponding closures as the values.

Comparable interface. That interface includes the compareTo method, which returns a negative number if its argument is greater than the current object, a positive number if the argument is less than the current object, and zero otherwise. The String class implements Comparable as a lexicographical sort, which is alphabetical, but sorts capital letters ahead of lowercase letters. We’ll look at a Groovy equivalent to this in a moment, but let’s consider another issue first. What if you want to sort the strings by length rather than alphabetically?
