The support services [are] not very much up to the mark as per the market. They need to improve it to make it at par with their competitors.

The support is not that available 24.7 they need to better their services and improve to make a step ahead of other competitors in the market. Nevertheless, we are just looking for more improvement from the support team, and everything will run smoothly.

GraalVM provides better performance for the Java Applications and also helps in reducing the boot time. The support provided by Oracle is great and the community has been able to help to resolve most of the issues. The user can write the code in multiple languages within a single application only. The chat support provided for the product is amazing and they have in-depth knowledge of the product and they are able to resolve the tickets within hours only.

This community is still in the growing phase and resolution of all issues might not be available in the community. Also, there is a cost factor involved if you take enterprise support which is not great as well.

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.

The support we received when porting legacy applications from the GraalVM team and community was commendable. We were able to get assistance in introducing alternatives for the libraries we were using where appropriate. GraalVM support was also able to help us with some configuration options we were stuck with for configuring deployment environments on AWS compute.

Have no experience with enterprise support. Documentation is outdated sometimes and could be better overall. GraalVM community is growing and responsive, still not as mature, but helpful and active.

Awesome is all I have to say for the issues that happen in GraalVM. The people over at Github are very attentive and help a ton if any issues are found, Oracle support themselves are very helpful. My experience with them has always been a swift and easy support, something that other languages lack.

GraalVM is awesome in terms of support and their Github team is always active in their issues and pull requests. The fact that the project is also open source means that it is easily viewable and our team can dig into how it works.

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.
