Spring Native provides beta support for compiling Spring applications to native executables using https://www.graalvm.org[GraalVM] https://www.graalvm.org/reference-manual/native-image/[native-image] compiler, in order to provide a native deployment option typically designed to be packaged in lightweight containers. In practice, the target is to support your Spring Boot application , almost unmodified, on this new platform.

The easiest way to start with Spring Native is probably to go to https://start.spring.io/[start.spring.io], add the Spring Native dependency, and read the {documentation-url}[reference documentation]. Make sure to configure properly the https://docs.spring.io/spring-native/docs/current/reference/htmlsingle/#spring-aot[Spring AOT Maven and Gradle plugins] that are mandatory to get proper native support for your Spring application.
