Here’s a new post by @schmitch about running Play on GraalVM: https://blog.playframework.com/play-on-graal/. He gets speed ups and he demos how to interop with C code.

On the 17th of April, Oracle Labs presented the community the first release cadence for their new universal virtual machine called GraalVM. Graal is a Polyglot VM that can run multiple languages and can interop between them without any overhead. In this blog post I will go into details what this means for Scala and especially for Play Framework and what runtime characteristics the new VM has, when running Play on top of it.
