“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 is easy to use right out of the box and fun to work with. It saves a lot of time in the development phase!
Over the last 78 days, JRebel prevented at least 1774 redeploys/restarts, saving about 71.9 hours!
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.
Manual redeploys were drawing us crazy, tired and bored. Now development is fun again.
Saving time with JRebel is so amazing. No more redeployments... Refactoring classes, Refresh the page and that's it! Amazing stuff!
It used to take 5 mins to rebuild and restart the server - now we see changes pretty much instantaneously. I saw the value right away.
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'm afraid our developers might go for a strike if we say to them, ‘Hey, we're not going to use JRebel anymore.
Since migrating to IBM WAS 7.0, we've had trouble with replacing HotCode - we're now using JRebel for uninterrupted development and it's working fine :)
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.
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.
Stopping and start my container 10 times a day is the most annoying thing in the Java world. Finally I hope I have found the solution with JRebel.
