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. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/oracle-labs/program-languages/overview/index.html 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. -- Paulo
