Hi. I am reading the first freely available intro chapter, which states:

1.1.4 Community-driven but corporate-backed
For some people, it's comforting to know that their investment in a language is
protected by its adoption as a standard. This is one of the distinctive promises of
Groovy. Since the passage of JSR-241, Groovy is the second language under
standardization for the Java platform (the first being the Java language).

I took a look at the JSR page and the status is inactive. This probably means there is a new JSR (if so, change the number in the chapter, please) or groovy will after all never be standardized as a JVM language, in which case the quoted excerpt is no longer valid, and should probably be changed as well.

Re: JSR 241 - described but inactive
Hi jamba,

thanks for the reminder. Yes, we should keep this information up to date. This is not quite easy since the state of the JSR changed back and forth and my latest info is that it will be reactivated as soon as it becomes clear how Oracle handles this.

thanks a lot for posting
