“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
Life without JRebel is no fun...
Start to really like JRebel. Make Java feel like a scripting language.
#IntelliJ and #JRebel combined cost less than your consultant's daily wages, but will boost his productivity x10. Why hesitate ?
I heard about JRebel from my colleague who highly recommended using it. After trying it out a couple of times, it made perfect sense to me, and I haven't looked back since. Great product.
I see JRebel as this "missing piece" in the whole picture where we could see Java-stack not only as a stable, well-tested environment to build applications on but also as a rapid development environment.
JRebel saves a lot of frustration from dealing with JSF, JPA and Tomcat. One big thing is I don't need to start Tomcat every time to see my code!
JRebel has the ability to change code dynamically when the program is running or during a debug session, which I have been looking for a long time. I am sure it will save a lot of development time, especially when the size of the project is large.
It's so good I sometimes forget that I'm using a crappy toy OS (Windows) on poorly spec'd hardware with a painfully slow app server rather than Tomcat on OS X.
JRebel is an awesome product. I probably save 3 hours out of a 6.5 hour workday using JRebel - I use Eclipse with JBoss and it saves me a tremendous amount of time by not having to restart JBoss every time I make a change.
The developers at BlackBeltFactory.com use JRebel and although I probably could have gotten it for free from the ZT guys, I wanted to pay for this fantastic product.
Manual redeploys were drawing us crazy, tired and bored. Now development is fun again.
I'm afraid our developers might go for a strike if we say to them, ‘Hey, we're not going to use JRebel anymore.
