“Software is eating the world,” said Netscape founder and tech investor Marc Andreessen. Line by line, hardware is being consumed by code, and Java is spoken by a massive army of hungry mouths.
However, since the programming language was introduced in 1996, developers have had to write Java code on their own machines and then upload their code to remote servers for testing.
The idea that would become a glass of ice water to coders in redeployment hell was born in Estonia in 2006. That’s when Jevgeni Kabanov found a way to address Java’s core problem – the redeployment bottleneck. His insight led to a start-up and two products that smart Java teams wouldn’t be caught without. In other words, magic happened.
Developers at thousands of companies around the world use JRebel to instantly view code changes without redeploying the application server. Operations teams run LiveRebel to eliminate server downtime during live-app updates.
The result? Happy coders writing and testing beautiful code. Happy operations teams running beautiful code. And happy customers enjoying time and money saved through all that beautiful, productivity-boosting code.
Today, ZeroTurnaround is the labor of love by a global team of 90+. The company’s commercial heart beats in Boston, Massachusetts, while our development feet are firmly planted (and rapidly growing) in Estonia, at two offices in Tallinn and Tartu. We also have a branch in Prague, Czech Republic.
DEVELOPERS SAYING REALLY NICE THINGS
We’re developers who make stuff for people just like us. Yes, our software is used by companies, from startups to well-known multinationals. But at their core, our products are consumer products. It’s a stroke of good fortune that our “consumers” happen to be other Java developers and intrepid operations folks who keep existing Java apps humming (and up-to-date). You know, people like us. Here’s what some of them have said about life with tools we’ve made.
WHAT THEY SAY
JRebel is easy to use right out of the box and fun to work with. It saves a lot of time in the development phase!
So far, everybody I speak to about JRebel is satisfied with it - frankly, I cannot believe nobody thought of JRebel before.
I like the way [JRebel monitors] the file system for changes and smartly reloads Java changes into Hot Swap/Hot code memory. It just eliminated by build time during development by 90%.
JRebel is like a drug for me, I am totally addicted to this tool because it saves a lot of nerves and energy and it is exactly what I need to speed up the software production process for my application.
Been using JRebel (http://jrebel.com/) for around 10 minutes now.. Feels like I have saved 11 minutes of redeploying time
Saving time with JRebel is so amazing. No more redeployments... Refactoring classes, Refresh the page and that's it! Amazing stuff!
Just a few compiles without having to deploy was enough to convince me to buy JRebel.
It not only takes me at least 2 minutes to redeploy, but it adds another 5 minutes to get back in the zone and I still have to bring the application back to the state where I was developing. This alone is at least 10 minutes lost for a minor change. JRebel deserves every single cent of its selling price.
I am so much more productive with Java, JPA and Spring (and JRebel) than i was with RoR the last months… It's really fun again.
Just started using JRebel; installation was done in 15 minutes and 1 hour later it saved me 20 minutes of restart time.
JRebel has made my life so shiny happy. It auto deploys updated classes and JSPs. Holla!
Alterar método, adicionar atributos, criar classes, restart servidor, isso era um ritual a cada hora do meu trabalho. Com JRebel posso alterar qualquer código java que já é refletido na aplicação em funcionamento. Muito bom.
