Overall Satisfaction with GraalVM

Just our department, we are exploring the possibility of using GraalVM to move old java applications on [the] cloud using the advantage of native compilation in order to reduce the workload and relative costs. Right now [applications] are written in spring and are quite [a] memory consuming (we use cloud stream messaging for processing [events] from Kafka).
  • Reduce memory consumption
  • Improve performance
  • Improve startuptime
  • Really difficult to use with reflection
  • Some library not compatible (AKKA)
  • Lack of documentation
  • Smaller cost for containerized app in cloud
  • Smaller cost for on premises deployment
  • Larger developing time
Lack of documentation for the community edition.

Do you think GraalVM delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with GraalVM's feature set?

Yes

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?

No

Would you buy GraalVM again?

Yes

GraalVM works really well for [projects] with [a] framework already native compliant. With Spring is quite difficult in certain case to get it [to] work.
