Graal is a dynamic meta-circular
research compiler for Java that is designed for
extensibility and modularity. One of its main
distinguishing elements is the handling of optimistic
assumptions obtained via profiling feedback and the
representation of deoptimization guards in the
compiled code. Truffle is a self-optimizing runtime
system on top of Graal that uses partial evaluation
to derive compiled code from interpreters. Truffle is
suitable for creating high-performance
implementations for dynamic languages with only
moderate effort. The presentation includes a
description of the Truffle multi-language API and
performance comparisons within the industry of
current prototype Truffle language implementations
(JavaScript, Ruby, and R). Both Graal and Truffle are
open source and form themselves research platforms in
the area of virtual machine and programming language
implementation (http://openjdk.java.net/projects/graal/).
