Lucee on GraalVM

I successfully ran Lucee on a GraalVM Java without no extra effort. Using the Express installation it is booting gracefully and my feel it’s faster then normal java but didn’t benchmark/measured yet.

GraalVM is a universal virtual machine for running applications written in JavaScript, Python, Ruby, R, JVM-based languages like Java, Scala, Groovy, Kotlin, Clojure, and LLVM-based languages such as C and C++.

GraalVM removes the isolation between programming languages and enables interoperability in a shared runtime. It can run either standalone or in the context of OpenJDK, Node.js or Oracle Database.
