Networked Assets, a German company that counts Atlassian, Oracle, VMWare and IBM among it’s solution partners, decided to see exactly what kind of productivity gain they could get from using JRebel to speed up Java development time. The results were jaw-dropping. Networked Assets committed to a magnificent scientific study on “Team Velocity” that yielded an astounding 40% gain in development productivity.
For the 5th time, ZeroTurnaround is sending a team of crazed geeks to Devoxx and bringing all the energy, fun and beer you need from a Java conference. Come visit us at booth #13 to see what’s new in JRebel and LiveRebel and the ZT team. We’ve got free software licenses, t-shirts and a fast-fingers typing contest – the winner leaves with a lightsaber! (Caution: it looks real)
Update Java Apps and dependencies without hassles
LiveRebel is a Continuous Delivery tool that helps you take Java apps to users faster. It instantly deploys apps across the QA and production environments in cloud, virtual or physical servers, and it does it all with zero downtime and no session loss, making LiveRebel unique in the market.
A Java application rarely consists of just Java code. It includes multiple interdependent components – a database, JMS, other dependent applications, native libraries, resources in a CDN and so on. The point is, regularly deploying these apps manually can be cumbersome for operations teams – why not automate the process, recording each step along the way with an audit trail?
For this reason, the LiveRebel team at ZeroTurnaround wanted to introduce Configuration Scripts (aka “Config Scripts”), an intelligent feature that helps you automate the deployment of your Java app and its dependencies using any of your existing deployment scripts from a single viewpoint.
Barcelona, the city that brought you tapas, Gaudi and dentists open until 10pm, now brings you Gartner’s Symposium ITxpo 2012. This gathering of 5,000 attendees is hungry for new IT solutions, so we decided to send forth a small-but-great team that includes our CEO and Founder Jevgeni Kabanov, President & COO Alex Laats, Director of Marketing, Jeremy Lopez and Head of Rebel Labs, Oliver White.
What do we hope to accomplish at Gartner’s Symposium/ITxpo this year?
It’s been a busy, crazy two months since we released JRebel 5.0.1, and during this time a lot has happened. Not necessarily related to the release, but to the well-being of the ZT team. We went to the beautiful island of Crete and we rocked the floor at JavaOne in San Francisco just recently. But despite work travel & vacations, we’re actually ready to announce the release of JRebel 5.1. Here are the 3 most awesome things about this release:Read more
Perhaps you’ve heard of the JCP (Java Community Process) before, but in case you don’t follow what is happening with Java standards, the JCP is the body that defines ALL Java standards. Here’s a few facts about the it:
- The JCP defined Java standards through Java Specification Requests (JSRs), which deliver a written specification, reference implementation and acceptance tests to validate other implementations
- JSRs are headed by the Specification Lead and discussed in an Expert Group (EG)
- Then, the JCP Executive Committee (JCP EC) approves the creation and release of JSRs as well as whether they can be bundled into Java EE, Java SE or Java ME distributions.
Now here’s the kicker – JCP membership is open and FREE to all individuals.
It’s not everyday that a software product saves a life – but JRebel has done it.
What are we talking about exactly? Since we launched myJRebel (formerly JRebel Social) back in 2011, Java Developers around the world have prevented over 18 million application server restarts using JRebel technology – this adds up to over 82 years of time savings. Basically, my total expected life span.

I’m a bit of a workout enthusiast, and, at the suggestion of one of our salespeople here at ZeroTurnaround, I am trying out this new “upscale” gym in Boston. This morning, I was leaving the gym and feeling healthy, and there was a guy at the exit handing out free plums. He told me that they were locally-grown plums from Lancaster, MA, then told me that he was opening up a new store for this kind of local, fresh produce “just around the corner.”
As an entrepreneur and business enthusiast, I thought, “Hmmm… this guy’s got a pretty good idea of his product-market match.” Why?
1. He’s got fresh, local produce
2. He’s setting up a small store where he sells the produce at premium prices
3. He’s close to health-conscious people who are willing to pay higher prices for things like gyms and better food.

JavaOne 2012 was truly great. Better than any other conference for us this year. And last year. Here are 8 reasons why this JavaOne rocked, and what we did:
