“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
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.
Start to really like JRebel. Make Java feel like a scripting language.
Alterar método, adicionar atributos, criar classes, restart servidor, isso era um ritual a cada hora do meu trabalho. Com JRebel posso alterar qualquer código java que já é refletido na aplicação em funcionamento. Muito bom.
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.
Just a few compiles without having to deploy was enough to convince me to buy JRebel.
Manual redeploys were drawing us crazy, tired and bored. Now development is fun again.
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:)
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.
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.
I started using JRebel for web and server deployments on JBoss and I've been addicted ever since. It simply just works :-)
Every delay sucks, so whatever causes less delays rocks.
