“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
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.
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!
Just a few compiles without having to deploy was enough to convince me to buy JRebel.
We are all very happy with the fact of not wasting time on things that are not coding and finishing things.
Once we started using our JRebel Evaluation, we realized that we don't want to go back to the old way anymore! :-)
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!
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.
Over the last 78 days, JRebel prevented at least 1774 redeploys/restarts, saving about 71.9 hours!
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 :-)
To whomever tells me 'I don't have time to lose trying to use JRebel', I would say 'You're actually losing time by NOT using it'
Every delay sucks, so whatever causes less delays rocks.
