“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 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
With JRebel, I am able to see code changes more or less in real time - JEE development is a joy once more!
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.
JRebel is really an amazing tool.
Manual redeploys were drawing us crazy, tired and bored. Now development is fun again.
Jrebel is pretty much well known but I never really considered trying & buying it because most of my projects were not so complex. Now I have a much bigger project and applying code changes becomes more difficult so I decided to give JRebel a try. So far, trial version worked perfectly.
I started using JRebel for web and server deployments on JBoss and I've been addicted ever since. It simply just works :-)
JRebel is so important to us, we really love it.
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:)
Everyone who has tried it has fallen in love with it.
Every java dev should have a copy of #jrebel installed. Buy it yourself if your workplace is cheap. It's soo worth it.
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.
We are all very happy with the fact of not wasting time on things that are not coding and finishing things.
