    I trying out Jrebel in Intellij (latest version). No matter how many times I re-install JRebel, it will give the following error when running a java project.

    The error is :
    JRebel-JVMTI [FATAL] Error opening jar file /Users/myaccount/.jrebel/bootcache/jrebel-bootstrap-af787526f8ea2ba01f1fda2fd9814d5c.jar

    Check the log file /Users/myaccount/.jrebel/bootcache/jrebel.boot.log for more details.

    The log file detail is
    JRebel-JVMTI [DEBUG] Initializing agent… 1.0.33-2018-02-27T08:10:33Z

    How can this be resolved ?

    Before we dig any deeper, please just try deleting the ../bootcache folder, this will force the files to be regenerated.

    I’m pretty sure that the IntelliJ process does not have sufficient access rights for that file(s). See what ls -la /Users/myaccount/.jrebel/bootcache/ displays.




    Hi Hannes,

    It is working after removing the bootcache folder
