Welcome back to the series exploring the synergy between Ballerina and GraalVM. In the previous article, ‘Ballerina Code to GraalVM Executable,’ we delved into the seamless integration of Ballerina and GraalVM, witnessing how Ballerina applications can build GraalVM native executable and achieve improved performance and reduced memory consumption. In this continuation, we take the next step in our journey, exploring how to containerize a Ballerina GraalVM executable. If you have not read the previous article, I recommend you do so before continuing with this one.
We will use the same Conference Service application to build a Docker image containing the GraalVM executable. The code for this application can be found in the below link:
