“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
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.
Every delay sucks, so whatever causes less delays rocks.
JRebel is really great - it helped our team save a lot of hours!
Every java dev should have a copy of #jrebel installed. Buy it yourself if your workplace is cheap. It's soo worth it.
The only advantage of being in JavaOne [India] was JRebel. Totally awesome product. Need to try that immediately!
Since migrating to IBM WAS 7.0, we've had trouble with replacing HotCode - we're now using JRebel for uninterrupted development and it's working fine :)
Just a few compiles without having to deploy was enough to convince me to buy JRebel.
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.
Con JRebel, salvar un archivo en el IDE y ver mis cambios inmediatamente en la pagina sin tener que volver a hacer "deploy", no tiene precio.
We were attracted to JRebel because we had grown very frustrated with starting JBoss app sever constantly. After seeing JRebel mentioned in several blogs recently, we gave it a try. While it doesn't eliminate app server restarts completely, we only redeploy about 10% as much as before, saving both time and attention span!
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!
I was attracted to JRebel because of its transparency, simplicity and efficiency. It's easy to set up and very nice to use!
