“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
Start to really like JRebel. Make Java feel like a scripting language.
Jrebel is one those small non-intrusive pieces of software that you just can't live without!
So far, everybody I speak to about JRebel is satisfied with it - frankly, I cannot believe nobody thought of JRebel before.
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.
Over the last 78 days, JRebel prevented at least 1774 redeploys/restarts, saving about 71.9 hours!
It not only takes me at least 2 minutes to redeploy, but it adds another 5 minutes to get back in the zone and I still have to bring the application back to the state where I was developing. This alone is at least 10 minutes lost for a minor change. JRebel deserves every single cent of its selling price.
I'm afraid our developers might go for a strike if we say to them, ‘Hey, we're not going to use JRebel anymore.
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.
JRebel is one of the best utility I've ever seen. We have just met JRebel and loved it.
Everyone who has tried it has fallen in love with it.
JRebel is a real solution for build/deployment pain in Java EE. Good product. It just works and doesn't need a 3 hour configuration phase :)
JRebel is really great - it helped our team save a lot of hours!
