For most companies, a customer who does not openly complain about poor features or customer service can be considered a success. Indeed, when your toothpaste does its job correctly, do you write to Colgate congratulating them and wishing them well? No.
That’s why it’s so cool that Chris Wong, who writes a blog on Java software and Blackberry development, wrote a solid, very well-rounded review of JRebel called “Programming at the Speed of Thought”.
This is not a fluff piece written by a unwavering fan, but a fair overview of what JRebel is capable of, what (and why) it is not yet able to do, and his recommendation to development teams about using JRebel. From the article:
„In my last blog post, I lamented the slow turnaround and overall heaviness of enterprise Java development. I also said that I would be checking out JRebel, a tool designed to let you make code changes and push them out to a running application without restarting the application. My verdict? I loved it, convinced my boss to buy it, and am an enthusiastic user. But it is not flawless, so adopters should keep expectations realistic.“
Good stuff Chris, keep it coming!
