Abstract

Graal is a new JIT compiler for the JVM and a possible replacement for Hotspot's C2. However, this isn't the whole story and the design of Graal enables it to do more than to be a great JIT. In this talk we'll take a look at the differences between C2 and Graal, what this can mean for the performance of your code, and what else is possible with this new JIT.

Speaker: Duncan MacGregor
