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/).
