Native image with GraalVM

GraalVM allows you to compile your programs ahead-of-time into a native executable. See https://www.graalvm.org/docs/reference-manual/aot-compilation/ for more information.

You can build a native executable in 2 different ways:

  • With a local installation of GraalVM
  • Using Docker

Local build

Download Graal VM at https://github.com/oracle/graal/releases, the version currently supported for Helidon is 1.0.0-rc13.

# Setup the environment
export GRAALVM_HOME=/path
# build the native executable
mvn package -Pnative-image

You can also put the Graal VM bin directory in your PATH, or pass -DgraalVMHome=/path to the Maven command.

See https://github.com/oracle/helidon-build-tools/tree/master/helidon-maven-plugin for more information.

Start the application:

./target/helidon-quickstart

Multi-stage Docker build

Build the "native" Docker Image

docker build -t helidon-quickstart-native -f Dockerfile.native .

Start the application:

docker run --rm -p 8080:8080 helidon-quickstart-native:latest
