Overall Satisfaction with GraalVM

GraalVM is still in the early stages of product investigation. Engineers are using it for R&D projects and getting familiar with how it can be used at a production level. It will address performance issues for our applications, notably startup times and artifact size.
  • Fast startup
  • Lower memory footprint
  • Polyglot apps
  • The name isn't so great.
  • More broad community use.
  • Positive feedback from early exploration.
  • Seems to be a mostly drop-in-place replacement.

Do you think GraalVM delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with GraalVM's feature set?


Did GraalVM live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of GraalVM go as expected?


Would you buy GraalVM again?


Well suited for polyglot apps and those needing high performance. If there is a specific legacy application that requires a specific JDK version, I would not recommend it immediately until further research and testing are performed.
