Subject Groovy using Graal
Date Mon, 04 Sep 2017 19:09:34 GMT
Hi all,

since Graal is now available in JDK9 by default I was wondering if we 
should go into a path for deep integration with Graal if we can take 
advantage of it.

In the past I was quite partial to this because of the licensing of 
Graal itself. I know from before it was GPL with or without classpath 
extension. But even with classpath extension I was not feeling well 
about depending on it and the trouble users would have go through to 
setup an optional Graal part.

Well, now since it is part of JDK9 those troubles are of the past. Now 
everyone has a ready to use Graal afaik. And we do no longer have to 
distribute it. That means we can consider really depending on it, like 
we depend on the Java platform itself.

How do others think?

bye Jochen
