Overall Satisfaction with GraalVM

We used Graal in a technical spike to cut down the footprint of Java stand-alone services that ran on a scheduled basis. It was a great success and brought us savings in memory and CPU footprint and improved startup times. In the long run, this will reduce infrastructure costs and improve platform resilience.
  • Well documented
  • Easy to use
  • Excellent for micro services
  • Some limitations on technology, e.g. reflection, but can be mitigated.
  • Improved start-up latency
  • Reduced cost of operations

Do you think GraalVM delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with GraalVM's feature set?


Did GraalVM live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of GraalVM go as expected?


Would you buy GraalVM again?


Graal is excellent for micro-service deployments—the savings just add up each time you build a new service! It slots into a build and can build a native binary image nicely, that runs just as easily as a JAR file. The only case I can imagine it not being useful is if you really need to use dynamic class loading at runtime, but these are rare cases in most applications.
