digitalmars.D - [OT] Graal (next generation JIT compiler in Java) now has a product

For the language geeks in the forum.

Graal, the meta-circular JIT compiler that goes back to the Maxime JVM 
done at Sun Research Labs, now has a product page.


This is part of the ongoing Oracle effort of reducing the amount of C++
code on the JVM.

Graal is already used by AMD on their GPGPU project with Oracle for Java 
(Sumatra), JRuby optimization efforts on the JVM and SubstrateVM, a 
static code compiler for Java (part of Graal toolchain).

When it will fully replace Hotspot, if ever, remains an open question.
