The Graal Compiler

Projects > Compiler and JVM Research at JKU

In this project we are working on a new Java just-in-time compiler written in Java that works with both the Maxine Research VM and the HotSpot™ VM. It features a new internal program representation that allows more aggressive optimizations. Some goals for the near future are to improve the peak performance of the compiler with a focus on vectorization (using the latest Intel vector instruction set) and on aggressive memory optimizations.

This project is part of OpenJDK, it can be found here.

Builds of the GraalVM based on OpenJDK can be found here.
Oracle also provides experimental builds of the Graal VM based on Oracle's JDK here.
