Overall Satisfaction with GraalVM

We are currently trying to move our infrastructure to Spring Boot, so with the recent additions of Spring Native, I got interested in Graal VM, and found it fascinating. It provides the opportunity to make tiny docker containers which provide the ability to lower cloud hosting pricing.
  • Making smaller docker images.
  • Ability to use multiple languages like Python, NodeJS (TS), and java in polyglot environment.
  • It seems to be unexpectedly faster than regular JVM.
  • I would like to see more JavaFX support for cross platform UIs.
  • I would like to see better Java 16 support.
  • Hoping Java 17 support will come at the same time as the release.
  • It's convenient for containerized workflows.
  • It's fast.
  • Negative impact is probably the lack of community and resources for GrraalVM.
Compiling to native code is probably the only reason for me so far.
I kind of wish it was better.
