JRebel 5.0 – Now Fighting Redeploys Locally and Remotely

Live from the Geekout conference in Tallinn, Estonia it is our immense pleasure to announce the release of JRebel 5.0. We bring to your attention the following key features among numerous fixes and improvements:

  • Remoting brings the JRebel that you know and love to remote and cloud servers that you use to develop your application. It can be used out-of-the-box with AWS, Rackspace and Jelastic and we are working with other PaaS providers to make sure it’s supported. Eclipse is supported in this release, IntelliJ IDEA and NetBeans coming soon. Learn more.
  • Config Centre that we built for Eclipse does away with rebel.xml and other manual configuration by inferring the right settings directly from your IDE. It also intelligently monitors different aspects of your environment and helps debug typical problems. Coming soon to IntelliJ IDEA and NetBeans. Give it a try.
  • myJRebel is the new licensing platform that allows you to use JRebel as SaaS. In this release we support the Scala and OSS free plans, with Social coming in the next few weeks. In the longer term this will allow us to better support JRebel in the Cloud, complementing JRebel Remoting. Check it out.

In addition to that we’ve created a new demo video for your hungry eyes using the popular open source Vaadin framework:

See the changelog for the full list of changes. The highlights include improvements for Hibernate, MyFaces, CXF and Spring integrations as well as WAS-specific support for EJBs. Also, applet support has been added to make it all even more awesome!

Download right away and enjoy! That’s an order! :)

    It was a great features by JRebel. I interacted with JRebel first with cloud environment and JRebel is Java’s most popular redeploy killer productivity tool for Java developers that instantly updates the running application whenever changes are made to class structures, resource files and framework configuration files.

    I tried implement it in jelastic cloud and it worked super awesome.
