“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
Our normal build-deploy cycle would take about 25 seconds. On average, JRebel saves one developer from 10-12 builds per hour. That's roughly five minutes per working hour or 30-35 minutes a day per developer.
Manual redeploys were drawing us crazy, tired and bored. Now development is fun again.
With JRebel, I am able to see code changes more or less in real time - JEE development is a joy once more!
Given the nominal cost of JRebel and the huge amounts of time it saves, I would not consider developing Java EE applications without it.
Since evaluating JRebel, we have seen redeploy times significantly reduced and I am therefore hoping that we can be more productive and turn around our development projects in a quicker timeframe.
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 is a blast! After the 30-day evaluation version expired, I found it hard to code anymore :-) It was very frustrating developing the old way without JRebel. Thank you very much for this wonderful piece of software!
Once we started using our JRebel Evaluation, we realized that we don't want to go back to the old way anymore! :-)
Like a fish rediscovering water.
#IntelliJ and #JRebel combined cost less than your consultant's daily wages, but will boost his productivity x10. Why hesitate ?
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.
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.
