    • API: it contains some end user API integrated with built-in extensions to simplify application graal-ification.
    • SPI: it contains the extension API intended to be used by libraries or integrators to simplify the graal-ification of a coding pattern or framework coding style.
    • Implementation: it does the orchestration of the extensions execution before the native-image command line generation and execution.
    • Maven Plugin: it wraps the Implementation in a Maven Plugin and provides Docker helper mojos.
