“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 a real solution for build/deployment pain in Java EE. Good product. It just works and doesn't need a 3 hour configuration phase :)
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.
Working with JBoss, Seam, JSF and the Eclipse JBoss Tools...It's very painful. I had read about JRebel a couple of times on theserverside.com and javalobby and decided to give it a try. It works great.
I like the way [JRebel monitors] the file system for changes and smartly reloads Java changes into Hot Swap/Hot code memory. It just eliminated by build time during development by 90%.
The only advantage of being in JavaOne [India] was JRebel. Totally awesome product. Need to try that immediately!
JRebel is one of the best utility I've ever seen. We have just met JRebel and loved it.
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!
I'm afraid our developers might go for a strike if we say to them, ‘Hey, we're not going to use JRebel anymore.
So far, everybody I speak to about JRebel is satisfied with it - frankly, I cannot believe nobody thought of JRebel before.
Everyone who has tried it has fallen in love with it.
Just started using JRebel; installation was done in 15 minutes and 1 hour later it saved me 20 minutes of restart time.
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.
