Its well fit for the environment where applications are written in programming languages supported by GraalVM. It's [a] very powerful and reliable, high-performer Java Virtual Machine that provides the Java Development kit i.e JDK that has the ability to compile the Java apps ahead of time. Maintenance of this tool is simple and it [increases] the efficiency of the product since it requires few resources.

  • It should be possible to use GraalVM EE to distribute native images of JavaFX applications for mobile platforms, especially for Apple platforms.
  • Native Images are a game changer. However, compiling complex applications can be a pain. Better support for an improved transition process are a must.

Support Rating
Open Source
Node.js is easy and good to use, their support team is also good they always tend to help you, and solve your problem, even we know that Node is free to use and opensource but then also we get support from them but for getting much better results we need to purchase standard or enterprises support provided by them.

Like all Oracle tools, you can find a lot of documentation and also write down your questions in a forum. Sadly I don't see too many users so far but I hope it'll keep increasing and in a short period we will have more information and ofc issues fixed. So far, everything I needed I could find easily.

  • Financial: Increased Java container count on the same hardware.
  • Performance: Decreased cold start time for container startup.
  • Training: Adopting GraalVM has a learning curve. This requires investment in time and resources. The benefits come through re-evaluating our current deployments for optimization.
