Building Vaadin UI with Xtend

Today I have decided to say hello to Xtend . I had wish to learn some new programming language. The list of the criteria for choosing one, wasn't so big .

It must be a programming language running on JVM,and it would be nice if i don't need to learn completely new eco system for building application. 
I have checked a few options. The list of programming language for JVM is quit big, but at I was deciding between the following ones: Groovy, Scala and Xtend. At and i have choose Xtend.
Scala did not fit well in my criteria, on the other hand groovy fits my criteria but it will be the next programming language which i will learn, after Xtend. It is hard to explain why I choose Xtend. I don't even think that the Xtend is a programming language, it's more like extension, but it's my opinion.
