[jira] [Commented] (GROOVY-8258) Create a LINQ-like DSL

JIRA jira@apache.org

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GROOVY-8258?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16089058#comment-16089058 ]

John Wagenleitner commented on GROOVY-8258:
-------------------------------------------

The DSL looks like it could be useful in certain situations.  But my opinion is that something like this would be best provided as an external library and not included (from the start anyway) as part of Groovy itself or one of its subprojects.
