“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
JRebel saves a lot of frustration from dealing with JSF, JPA and Tomcat. One big thing is I don't need to start Tomcat every time to see my code!
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.
Everyone who has tried it has fallen in love with it.
Over the last 78 days, JRebel prevented at least 1774 redeploys/restarts, saving about 71.9 hours!
JRebel seems to be the only cost effective way to accelerate the compilation and startup of our projects, consisting of several EAR artifacts deployed on a JBoss App Server. We have been using it for a year, and my development team is very pleased with it.
Just started using JRebel; installation was done in 15 minutes and 1 hour later it saved me 20 minutes of restart time.
I just hated the whole Eclipse IDE and one of my co-workers suggested I try Jrebel since 40% of my time was waiting on Eclipse to build and run. With Jrebel, things are going much smoothly now.
Life without JRebel is no fun...
Start to really like JRebel. Make Java feel like a scripting language.
Given the nominal cost of JRebel and the huge amounts of time it saves, I would not consider developing Java EE applications without it.
Saving time with JRebel is so amazing. No more redeployments... Refactoring classes, Refresh the page and that's it! Amazing stuff!
Once we started using our JRebel Evaluation, we realized that we don't want to go back to the old way anymore! :-)
