JetBrains, as makers of IntelliJ IDEA, concur with the jury. We also think Groovy is a great innovative technology! What is more, we’re working on extending the essential IntelliJ IDEA features to Groovy. These include compilation and building, code completion, smart navigation and search, and a lot more.
Look forward to Groovy support in IntelliJ IDEA!

    I am looking forward to Groovy support in the 6/7 series. I think groovy is a great language that really allows one to leverage existing java skills in this nice language.
