This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

GraalVM is a universal virtual machine by Oracle for running applications written in JVM languages, JavaScript, Python, Ruby and R, as well as C/C++ and other LLVM-based languages. At its simplest, GraalVM can be used as a more performant VM for JVM and other supported non-JVM languages. But it also allows us to write polyglot applications with very little performance impact; and its Native Image utility (currently only available as an Early Adopter Technology) lets us compile Java code ahead of time to stand-alone executables for faster startup and less memory use. GraalVM has generated a lot of excitement in the Java community, and a host of Java frameworks (including Micronaut, Quarkus, and Helidon) are already taking advantage of it.
