Oracle Accessibility Conformance Report

VPAT® Version 2.3 - April 2019

Name of Product:

Graal Cloud Native 4.2.1

Product Description:

Graal Cloud Native (GCN) is a build of a curated set of Micronaut framework modules and their required libraries for building portable cloud-native microservices that take full advantage of powerful cloud platform services and that can be compiled ahead-of-time by GraalVM Native Image. GCN also provides project creation utilities and Visual Studio Code (VS Code) extensions for application development and deployment.

This ACR covers Graal Cloud Native 4.2.1 on the Linux and macOS on x86 64-bit and ARM 64-bit architectures, and Microsoft Windows on x86 64-bit architectures.
This ACR covers the web UI components such as documentation and the GCN Launcher (henceforth, the launcher) - a project creation web application.
