Julia is an abstract interpretation-based static analyzer of Java bytecode. It appeared twelve years ago for the first time in a scientific publication, became a spin-off of the University of Verona in 2010, and was finally acquired by a large enterprise two years ago. The industrialization of an academic analyzer based on rigorous mathematical theories exposed us to various challenges about the efficiency, quality, and robustness.

In this talk, we will first introduce the main technical foundations of Julia and the most relevant analyses we implemented, and we will then discuss our market experience and the challenges raised by industrial software. Finally, we will present Julia’s current limitations as well as our mid- and long-term roadmap.
