THE STORY

“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.

The result? Happy coders writing and testing beautiful code. 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 150+. The company’s go-to-market 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.

We are dedicated to making developers lives better, and we now have over 65,000 active users at 5,200+ customers, including 36 of the Fortune 100, in 80+ countries.


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. You know, people like us. Here’s what some of them have said about life with the tools we’ve made.

WHAT THEY SAY

Jrebel is one those small non-intrusive pieces of software that you just can't live without!

Jrebel is so awesome it almost hurts. Or rather, not using it hurts.

Our normal build-deploy cycle would take about 25 seconds. On average, JRebel saves one developer from 10-12 builds per hour. That's roughly five minutes per working hour or 30-35 minutes a day per developer.

JRebel is really great - it helped our team save a lot of hours!

The time period between making a change, rebuilding, deploying and restarting the container has always been a sticking point with me, but JRebel allows me to develop constantly without bouncing back and forth. Personally, it's one of the more important pieces of software I've come across in quite some time.

We found it very useful to dig into the SQL queries. We quickly found some very lengthy and complicated queries. We also found that our session can get as large as 30 Mb - we had too many references to Spring beans in the session.

We had a need for faster turnarounds since we have huge projects that take ages to build and deploy. Jrebel is an excellent tool to reduce that time:)

Been using JRebel (http://jrebel.com/) for around 10 minutes now.. Feels like I have saved 11 minutes of redeploying time

Why isn't JRebel part of the standard Java SDK?

Saving time with JRebel is so amazing. No more redeployments... Refactoring classes, Refresh the page and that's it! Amazing stuff!

Working with JBoss, Seam, JSF and the Eclipse JBoss Tools...It's very painful. I had read about JRebel a couple of times on theserverside.com and javalobby and decided to give it a try. It works great.
