GraalVM challenges the status quo on the JVM. This newly-released JIT compiler brings substantial speed improvements and support for polyglot applications. It also allows us to translate our JVM bytecode into self-contained native binaries. In this session we’ll explore GraalVM’s potential. We’ll use the new compiler suite to build small native binaries from simple JVM applications. We’ll discuss the method’s limitations and their impact. Finally, we’ll build complete web apps weighing a fraction of their traditional JVM incarnations.
