    1. Valhalla aims to revise the memory model for Java to allow for immutable types, which are more complex than primitives, but less flexible than objects. Sometimes you have more complex data that doesn’t change over the course of that object’s lifespan; burdening it with the overhead of a class is unnecessary. The initial proposal put it more succinctly: “Codes like a class, works like an int.” “For things like big data for machine learning or for natural language, Valhalla promises to represent data in a way that allows the JVM to fully take advantage of modern hardware architectures that have changed dramatically since Java was created,” said Saab.

    1. Keep the ergonomics of stable reference and directly mutable objects. In other words; be able to have a variable pointing to an object, and make subsequent reads or writes to it. Without needing to fear that you’re working with old data. While, in the background,..State is stored in an immutable, structurally shared tree.
