THE STORY

“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 an awesome product. I probably save 3 hours out of a 6.5 hour workday using JRebel - I use Eclipse with JBoss and it saves me a tremendous amount of time by not having to restart JBoss every time I make a change.

The developers at BlackBeltFactory.com use JRebel and although I probably could have gotten it for free from the ZT guys, I wanted to pay for this fantastic product.

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!

Saving time with JRebel is so amazing. No more redeployments... Refactoring classes, Refresh the page and that's it! Amazing stuff!

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.

Manual redeploys were drawing us crazy, tired and bored. Now development is fun again.

Why isn't JRebel part of the standard Java SDK?

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.

The difference between half minute and half second is not 29,5 seconds, but the feeling of coding freely and without pauses. I just follow my thoughts. That's it.

JRebel Customer

Over the last 265 days JRebel prevented at least 1,209 redeploys/restarts saving me about 49 hours.

So far, everybody I speak to about JRebel is satisfied with it - frankly, I cannot believe nobody thought of JRebel before.
