THE STORY

“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. Operations teams run LiveRebel to eliminate server downtime during live-app updates.

The result? Happy coders writing and testing beautiful code. Happy operations teams running beautiful code. And 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

Been using JRebel (http://jrebel.com/) for around 10 minutes now.. Feels like I have saved 11 minutes of redeploying time

Over the last 265 days JRebel prevented at least 1,209 redeploys/restarts saving me about 49 hours.

So far, everybody I speak to about JRebel is satisfied with it - frankly, I cannot believe nobody thought of JRebel before.

Everyone who has tried it has fallen in love with it.

Finally after seeing that JRebel won the JAX most innovative Java technology award, I am giving it a try. Sick of all the tomcat restarts.

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 :)

#IntelliJ and #JRebel combined cost less than your consultant's daily wages, but will boost his productivity x10. Why hesitate ?

Jrebel is one those small non-intrusive pieces of software that you just can't live without!

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.

Start to really like JRebel. Make Java feel like a scripting language.

JRebel has transformed a nightmarish 10-minute modify, compile and debug cycle to a matter of seconds. Thanks for giving me back my sanity.

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.
