“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
Saving time with JRebel is so amazing. No more redeployments... Refactoring classes, Refresh the page and that's it! Amazing stuff!
JRebel has made my life so shiny happy. It auto deploys updated classes and JSPs. Holla!
Been using JRebel (http://jrebel.com/) for around 10 minutes now.. Feels like I have saved 11 minutes of redeploying time
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!
Manual redeploys were drawing us crazy, tired and bored. Now development is fun again.
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 started using JRebel; installation was done in 15 minutes and 1 hour later it saved me 20 minutes of restart time.
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.
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.
Jrebel is so awesome it almost hurts. Or rather, not using it hurts.
Like a fish rediscovering water.
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!
