About Hubert Ikkink

My name is Hubert A. Klein Ikkink also known as mrhaki. I work at the great IT company JDriven. Here I work on projects with Groovy & Grails, Gradle and Spring. At JDriven we focus on SpringSource technologies. All colleagues want to learn new technologies, support craftmanship and are very eager to learn. This is truly a great environment to work in.

Groovy Goodness: Define Compilation Customizers With Builder Syntax

Since Groovy 2.1 we can use a nice builder syntax to define customizers for a CompileConfiguration instance. We must use the static withConfig method of the class CompilerCustomizationBuilder in the package org.codehaus.groovy.control.customizers.builder. We pass a closure with the code to define and register the customizers. For all the different customizers like ImportCustomizer, SecureASTCustomizers and ASTTransformationCustomizer there is a nice compact syntax.

In the following sample we use this builder syntax to define different customizers for a CompileConfiguration instance:

 

package com.mrhaki.blog

import org.codehaus.groovy.control.customizers.ASTTransformationCustomizer
import org.codehaus.groovy.control.CompilerConfiguration
import org.codehaus.groovy.control.customizers.builder.CompilerCustomizationBuilder
import groovy.transform.*


def conf = new CompilerConfiguration()

// Define CompilerConfiguration using 
// builder syntax.
CompilerCustomizationBuilder.withConfig(conf) {
    ast(TupleConstructor)
    ast(ToString, includeNames: true, includePackage: false)
    
    imports {
        alias 'Inet', 'java.net.URL'
    }
    
    secureAst {
        methodDefinitionAllowed = false
    }
}


def shell = new GroovyShell(conf)
shell.evaluate '''
package com.mrhaki.blog

class User {
    String username, fullname
}

// TupleConstructor is added.
def user = new User('mrhaki', 'Hubert A. Klein Ikkink')

// toString() added by ToString transformation.
assert user.toString() == 'User(username:mrhaki, fullname:Hubert A. Klein Ikkink)'

// Use alias import.
def site = new Inet('http://www.mrhaki.com/')
assert site.text
'''

Code written with Groovy 2.2.2.
