Spring framework support improved
This release delivers important improvements to our Spring framework support. Reloading is faster thanks to the improved file system scanning. Also, support for the
@Autowired annotation is improved: we now support editing these definitions and adding new dependencies.
New server versions – Tomcat, WildFly, Jetty
We have tested and verified JRebel’s compatibility with a bunch of new application server versions, including:
- Tomcat 7.0.64
- Tomcat 8.0.26
- WildFly 8.2.1
- WildFly 9.0.1
- Jetty 9.2.13
- Jetty 9.3.3
- Google App Engine 1.9.25
JRebel with remote servers and cloud
There are also more news for the users of our remote servers feature. We are simplifying the remote server security protocol, IDE-by-IDE. In JRebel 6.2.4, we introduced the new password-based security implementation in Eclipse. This time, it is IntelliJ’s turn. Instead of the hard-to-change, hard-to-share public/private keys, the security protocol is now based on a simple password that can be set on the remote server side.
More detailed information on how to upgrade the IntelliJ remote server security is available here. Do keep in mind that security for the remote servers is optional — it should not be used when working within a private network.
More IDE plugin improvements – Eclipse and NetBeans
The JRebel for Eclipse plugin received more polish for the new remote servers GUI first delivered in 6.2.4.
As for the NetBeans IDE, we took some time and made sure that our plugin runs smoothly on the forthcoming NetBeans 8.1 release.
To get all this awesome stuff, install or upgrade the JRebel IDE plugin via your IDE plugin management system. Are you a new user? Apply for our free 14-day trial right within the IDE. For more download options and easy guides, check out the JRebel download page.
