MICRODOC/ORACLE GRAAL VM™
MicroDoc is a source code licensee of Oracle’s GraalVM™ and has the unique ability to bring this advanced runtime technology to the embedded space.
In addition to the so called “polyglot” capabilities, GraalVM also offers a unique feature that allows you to build compiled native executables from Java code. This technology allows for drastically improved startup time, more deterministic runtime behavior and, depending on your application, may reduce footprint and resource usage. These advantages are useful in the cloud and on servers, but they are also essential for many embedded applications.
This is why MicroDoc has worked with Oracle to create a GraalVM Embedded™ offering.

The latest on Graal VM
For devices that are not powerful enough to run a full feature browser or Android system, MicroDoc is developing a user interface framework directly integrated with the Graal virtual machine. Why? Because the number of small devices is increasing dramatically, and although they may be small and low powered they still deserve an up-to-date user interface.
Would it be fair to say that the GraalVM is a step closer to the holy grail of polyglot programming? Yes, according to the virtual machine experts from MicroDoc. Here’s an overview of what the GraalVM can do for software developers.
Cars are quickly converting into cyber centres on wheels, and buyers expect new features to be introduced just as fast as in their smartphones and consumer electronics. That puts tremendous pressure on car manufacturers. To relieve some of the pressure MicroDoc is now introducing GraalVM embedded, a virtual machine allowing for faster development cycles while retaining the stability and longevity required by the auto industry.
MicroDoc is introducing GraalVM to the embedded world. It is the Swiss Army knife of virtual machines. It can accelerate the startup of applications like a car’s rear view camera with more than a factor of 10. Furthermore it hosts multiple programming languages at the same time, can reduce memory usage dramatically, and frees you from taking care of complex software infrastructure issues.
