“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
Everyone who has tried it has fallen in love with it.
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!
We are all very happy with the fact of not wasting time on things that are not coding and finishing things.
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.
We’ve had some real OutOfMemory problems in our production environment for quite some time. Once I got XRebel up and running I noticed that our most used webapplication uses around 15MB/User session. By tuning a few JSF parameters I got the average user session from 15MB to 0,5MB.
Given the nominal cost of JRebel and the huge amounts of time it saves, I would not consider developing Java EE applications without it.
I like the way [JRebel monitors] the file system for changes and smartly reloads Java changes into Hot Swap/Hot code memory. It just eliminated by build time during development by 90%.
Alterar método, adicionar atributos, criar classes, restart servidor, isso era um ritual a cada hora do meu trabalho. Com JRebel posso alterar qualquer código java que já é refletido na aplicação em funcionamento. Muito bom.
Just a few compiles without having to deploy was enough to convince me to buy JRebel.
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:)
Over the last 78 days, JRebel prevented at least 1774 redeploys/restarts, saving about 71.9 hours!
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.
