Maximizing Performance With GraalVM

Feb 20, 2020

In this session we will discuss the best practices for Java code and compiler configurations to maximize performance with GraalVM and how to measure performance in a reliable manner. We will talk about how to achieve minimal memory footprint and binary size of GraalVM native images - programs compiled ahead of time to native executables. A comparison of profile-guided optimizations for ahead-of-time compilation and just-in-time compilation will show the benefits and drawbacks of the two approaches. After this session you will have a better idea how to use GraalVM for the maximum potential to run your applications faster!
