Overall Satisfaction with GraalVM

GraalVM is good technology. We are currently using it for building native images of iOS & Android applications. We have planned to have internal applications, which are developed on Java to be used with iOS and Android. GraalVM native images helps to build, package, and run those java applications on iOS and Android. We used GraalVM with Gluon package. Using Maven build tool we generated those apps. This software is used by our team of 15 members. We are in still the development phase, so it is limited to the team for internal usage. The problems that we are sorting out are managing daily work status, notifications, and publishing team events internally.


  • Easy way of collaborating technologies
  • Resolving the issues with native images
  • Enhancing the limitation of applications across the platforms
  • GraalVM creates the virtual images for testing on the platforms like iOS and Android
  • It supports both open-source and enterprise editions
  • Documentation of and help with few minor issues with GraalVM commands
  • Demoing the use cases with GraalVM capabilities
  • Showcase how it is used across the platforms
  • Without big changes in the development method, we have developed mobile applications
  • Since it is new to us, we need more documentation on the usage of commands
  • Good platforms are applications for development
Yes - I am member of Oracle and Java. Oracle group is especially helpful. As members, we will have good community help with understanding the usage of the GraalVM.
Oracle University has lot of good sections for learning new things and we have completed a few certifications. It has different dimensions of learning like on Cloud ERP, Cloud integrations, Java Certifications, and many others. As part of our organizations, most of us have used Oracle university for learning and some guidance.
The packaging of GraalVM is completely different form the above-listed products, it is more like an integration platform. The out of box solutions for technologies like Java, and using with iOS native image is one of the examples. And easily used with Gradle and Maven build packages.
Best way to work across the technologies.
Still we need to know more to get the support on Graalvm.

GraalVM is more like an open-source SDK--we can create applications across the platforms like desktop, mobile and cloud applications. It's easy to build and deliver the applications for native images of iOS and Android, and GraalVM easily talks to different technologies like Java, Python, Ruby, and different databases. GraalVM is well suited for development with Gradle and Maven build tools. Any open-source or enterprise application can be developed using it.
