Groovy/Griffon for extensions?

Hi all,

I'm trying to create a custom set of extensions for Oxygen Editor and I was wondering, can they be created with Groovy and/or Griffon? Has anyone tried this? Can you think of any pitfalls in using these for customizing Oxygen?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this!

Our API as you probably know is Java based. I remember we had discussions in the past with a developer who was successfully using Groovy to write his code. As long as this gets translated to a Java class which is inside a JAR archive, there is no problem with the approach. Groovy compiles to Java byte code so it should not matter.
