Introducing – JRebel Remoting

Another big thing with JRebel 4.6 is the introduction of JRebel Remoting (beta). A lot of Java Rebels have been asking us when will be they be able to remotely use JRebel to instantly reload classes without restarting.

With JRebel Remoting, developers can use JRebel on remote machines, meaning that code is written on one machine and all classes are reloaded (i.e. when you add a new feature or fix a bug) to a remote server. It doesn’t matter if the server is sitting under the developer’s table in the same LAN or in the Amazon EC2 cloud – all those setups are supported and with minimal configuration. You can find the usage guide for JRebel Remoting at a dedicated page:

New stuff with Spring, Glassfish and more

Other big updates coming with JRebel 4.6 (you can check out all the updates in the JRebel Changelog):

  • Support for new features in Spring 3.1 (e.g. annotation-based configuration)
  • Better support for CDI on Glassfish 3.1.x
