“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
Given the nominal cost of JRebel and the huge amounts of time it saves, I would not consider developing Java EE applications without it.
The time period between making a change, rebuilding, deploying and restarting the container has always been a sticking point with me, but JRebel allows me to develop constantly without bouncing back and forth. Personally, it's one of the more important pieces of software I've come across in quite some time.
For the price, and for how easy it is to get installed and running in a developers’ environment, using JRebel is pretty close to a no-brainer.
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 really an amazing tool.
It's so good I sometimes forget that I'm using a crappy toy OS (Windows) on poorly spec'd hardware with a painfully slow app server rather than Tomcat on OS X.
Over the last 78 days, JRebel prevented at least 1774 redeploys/restarts, saving about 71.9 hours!
Over the last 265 days JRebel prevented at least 1,209 redeploys/restarts saving me about 49 hours.
We were attracted to JRebel because we had grown very frustrated with starting JBoss app sever constantly. After seeing JRebel mentioned in several blogs recently, we gave it a try. While it doesn't eliminate app server restarts completely, we only redeploy about 10% as much as before, saving both time and attention span!
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!
Con JRebel, salvar un archivo en el IDE y ver mis cambios inmediatamente en la pagina sin tener que volver a hacer "deploy", no tiene precio.
Start to really like JRebel. Make Java feel like a scripting language.
