“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 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
Just started using JRebel; installation was done in 15 minutes and 1 hour later it saved me 20 minutes of restart time.
Since evaluating JRebel, we have seen redeploy times significantly reduced and I am therefore hoping that we can be more productive and turn around our development projects in a quicker timeframe.
I have been very impressed with JRebel, wish I had come across this product a lot sooner, would have saved me so much time/boredom waiting for so many container restarts.
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!
I started using JRebel for web and server deployments on JBoss and I've been addicted ever since. It simply just works :-)
Every java dev should have a copy of #jrebel installed. Buy it yourself if your workplace is cheap. It's soo worth it.
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.
JRebel is a blast! After the 30-day evaluation version expired, I found it hard to code anymore :-) It was very frustrating developing the old way without JRebel. Thank you very much for this wonderful piece of software!
JRebel is one of the best utility I've ever seen. We have just met JRebel and loved it.
I'm afraid our developers might go for a strike if we say to them, ‘Hey, we're not going to use JRebel anymore.
JRebel has made my life so shiny happy. It auto deploys updated classes and JSPs. Holla!
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.
