The JVM Thing 9.0 – Wednesday 5th December

1st talk:

Ten Things To Do With GraalVM - Presented by Chris Seaton, Research Manager @ Oracle Labs -

Oracle Labs is working on a new native compiler for the Java Virtual Machine called Graal. Graal is 'one compiler to rule them all', meaning we use it for both just-in-time compilation, and ahead-of-time compilation, for Java, JavaScript, Ruby, R, Python, C and other languages.
You may have heard the term 'Graal' but you are probably not aware of how many incredible things it can do.

It can run your Java application faster, compile Java to standalone native executables that start instantly, compile Java libraries to native libraries, run languages like JavaScript, Ruby, R, Python, including polyglot programs written in more than one of these languages, it can run native languages like C and C++ on the JVM, it gives you tools like debuggers that work across languages, and much more.
