Graal in JDK10?

I've had the pleasure of meeting Chris in person (DevoxxUK, earlier this year or last year, IIRC), and I'm definitely going to be going over that article later.

I guess what I'm leaning towards is a definitive "yes" or "no" as to whether Graal will be included as part of the *production* JDK releases, where the JEP talks about using the XX flags to turn on Experimental features, which are (probably) a non-starter for most production use scenarios, but I am willing to accept that Oracle may not know or want to commit to anything publicly at this point.

That said, if it's a given that it'll ship as part of production.... that would get me to do a happy dance, for sure. :-)

    Hello Ted.
    As far as I can tell Graal compiler is an important part of JDK9 (used for AOT 
    compilation). With few intrinsic switches it can even be turn on and used for 
    regular JIT compilation - find the details in the amazing Chris Seaton's

    more progress can be expected in forthcoming JDK releases.
