“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
You mean you haven't tried JRebel already! How could you have survived this long as a Java developer without it!
I started using JRebel for web and server deployments on JBoss and I've been addicted ever since. It simply just works :-)
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.
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.
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.
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 :)
I have been very impressed with JRebel, wish I had come across this product a lot sooner, would have saved me so much time/boredom waiting for so many container restarts.
Setting up JRebel was completely painless and my questions on the support forum were answered quickly. The performance gains were immediately obvious to us, so after the evaluation period was over we decided to purchase licenses for all our developers.
JRebel has made my life so shiny happy. It auto deploys updated classes and JSPs. Holla!
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 real solution for build/deployment pain in Java EE. Good product. It just works and doesn't need a 3 hour configuration phase :)
JRebel is really an amazing tool.
