“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 the 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
Just started using JRebel; installation was done in 15 minutes and 1 hour later it saved me 20 minutes of restart time.
Once we started using our JRebel Evaluation, we realized that we don't want to go back to the old way anymore! :-)
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.
Over the last 265 days JRebel prevented at least 1,209 redeploys/restarts saving me about 49 hours.
Jrebel is one those small non-intrusive pieces of software that you just can't live without!
Working with JBoss, Seam, JSF and the Eclipse JBoss Tools...It's very painful. I had read about JRebel a couple of times on theserverside.com and javalobby and decided to give it a try. It works great.
I was attracted to JRebel because of its transparency, simplicity and efficiency. It's easy to set up and very nice to use!
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.
I seriously cannot understand how I used to do my job without #jrebel.
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.
Thank you also for JRebel, it is saving my life every day.
We are all very happy with the fact of not wasting time on things that are not coding and finishing things.
