Likelihood to Recommend

GraalVM

GraalVM is very stable and has been very beneficial in terms of Project Delivery due to its advanced Virtual Machine providing JIT (just-in-time) compiler and AOT (ahead-of-time) compiler. So, I will definitely recommend it to others to try at least once in order to scale up the performance of polyglot applications.

Oracle Java SE

Oracle Java SE is the most popular program language and it suitable for almost kind of application and special for the big system which needs to separate into many sub-application with different business and deployment types as Java has many frameworks, libraries, and tools. Many of these are open-source tools by the community and support various integration types from Rest, SOAP API, RMI, File access... It has allowed me to be able to deploy in multiple OS without changing the code. In case the Application needs to deeply access hardware such as the driver, memory address, OS thread or needs to strickly manage memory such as allocating, pointing and deallocating, we needed another programming language.

Pros

GraalVM

  • High performance and it acts as JIT compiler. Optimizations like partial escape help a lot since it is not available in standard JIT compilers.
  • It helps in combining JAVASCRIPT, Java, and R
  • Helps in running native languages on the JVM
  • Helps in extension of JVM-Based application

Oracle Java SE

  • Runs on all OS Platforms. Applications made on Java can run on all modern OS platforms. No need to make separate.
  • Automatic Memory Management. Java's excellent implementation of a garbage collector clears up memory by removing unreferenced objects.
  • Multithreaded Performance. Shared memory areas maximizes the utility of the CPU, accomplishing more tasks than usual.

Cons

GraalVM

  • JIT compiler makes a long-running server process run even faster as time passes with optimization at runtime. Lack of this feature makes GraalVM not suited for certain applications
  • All the libraries are not easily available or compiled down to GraalVM binary. Manual Involvement is needed to make some libraries work. Reflection-based libraries specifically do not work.
  • There are runtime surprises in some cases and increases support needs

Oracle Java SE

  • The standard JVM generally requires a warming up period, and if you aren't cognizant of that, may get subpar performance on critical paths because they haven't been executed sufficiently yet.
  • Java's virtual machine abstracts away underlying hardware details, and that prevents developers from directly optimizing a solution for the hardware it'll be running on.

GraalVM does a good job of supporting multiple languages and performance. It is not too intensive with regards to memory. It starts up quickly so that there is little lag and downtime. I also think that GraalVM is good because it does not take up a lot of space on your machine.

Java is such a mature product at this point that there is little support from the vendor that is needed. Various sources on the internet, and especially StackOverflow, provide a wealth of knowledge and advice. Areas that may benefit from support is when dealing with complex multithreading issues and security libraries.

Alternatives Considered

GraalVM

GraalVM by far has proved to be the most reliable and advanced virtual machine supporting dual compilation (Static as well as Dynamic). Java Code is compiled by an ahead-of-time compiler to a native image that supports JVM based languages (Java, Scala, etc.) as well as other dynamic languages (JavaScript, Python, etc.). Apart from AOT Compiler, we also have JIT Dynamic compiler which increases the performance of our applications.

I wanted to write Python, NodeJS, PHP... but it's hard to compare all the different fruits in the basket. Java is good for what it was made for, and much more nowadays. Java was and I suspect, will be a strong candidate for any backend project, and it's one of the most popular languages ever created - for a reason. You can love it, hate it, but must know, what it is: that means something.

Return on Investment

GraalVM

  • Cost savings in terms of deployment and configuration
  • No need to purchase separate license and thus the licensing cost is reduced
  • Checkout process has become much faster than before

Oracle Java SE

  • The different versions make it harder to work with other companies where some use newer versions while some use older versions, costing time to make them compatible.
  • Licenses are getting to be costly, forcing us to consider OpenJDK as an alternative.
  • New features take time to learn. When someone starts using them, everyone has to take time to learn.
