I have to x-post this comment from the Hacker News thread, by Java Platform contributor, Ron Pressler.
The comment begins: “Just a clarification: when used as a JIT, Graal does not compile languages defined with the Truffle framework into Java bytecode. Rather it compiles both Java bytecode and Truffle languages directly into machine code (in this case, the Truffle language is Smalltalk bytecode), which it then installs in Hotspot’s code cache…”
But please read the whole thing. It blew my mind!
This is wonderful stuff.
This is amazing.
I’m floord by this.
There’s millions if java developers?
