Simon’s thoughts on current topics in Java development, focusing on enterprise development teams
We are happy to announce the release of License Server 3.5.0. This is the largest update the License Server has received recently.
Hi, I’m Sten the Product Manager of JRebel for Android.
As a team, we’ve made the decision to halt active development on JRebel for Android. All JRebel for Android Free version users can continue using the product until March 31, 2019. However, we will not be accepting any new users.
Enterprise license users can continue using JRebel for Android until the license expires. And, as promised, we’ll also continue adding annotation processors for our Enterprise customers. We will continue integrating new Android Studio, Android Gradle Plugin, and Gradle versions throughout this time. However, we will not be building new features or working to further optimize the build process.
We would like to thank everyone who has been part of this awesome journey for the past three years. It has been challenging and fun. For those who are interested in the history, here’s a recap of how JRebel for Android came to be.
With ZeroTurnaround now a part of the Rogue Wave family, what does this mean for the future of Java development?
Last week we released the XRebel Hub public API. It can be used to automate your performance testing. This article guides you through setting up an automated performance validation step in your CI server, using Jenkins as an example. We also provide a few real life automation examples.
One of the most fascinating additions to Java 9 is the JVMCI: Java-Level JVM Compiler Interface, a Java based compiler interface which allows us to plug in a dynamic compiler into the JVM. One of the main inspirations for including it into Java 9 was due to project Graal — a dynamic state-of-the-art compiler written in Java.
Just recently, I have had to admit being wrong. Very wrong. Way back at the start of October, I was feeling the familiar sensation of panic and dread that only happens right before I need to give a presentation that includes a demo!
One thing that I was very keen to demonstrate was how quick and easy it is to develop and build MicroServices packaged as Uber JARs with our new Payara Micro Maven plugin. Now that using the Maven plugin made such a difference in speed, I thought this was as good as it gets! Build a project in a couple of seconds and start it in a couple more – how much faster could it possibly get?
Quite a lot faster, it turns out.
So, let’s look at the Java Platform Module system, or Java 9 modules. While we’re eagerly waiting for the Java 10 release in March 2018, some teams probably haven’t had time yet to migrate to Java 9 and modularize their projects. If you see yourself using Java 9 now or in the future, this 1-page reference for the most important Java 9 modules concepts, keywords, and command line options could be really handy.

JRebel for Android instantly pushes your code and resources changes to your running Android app during development. It’s like Instant Run with a hyperdrive. In case you did not know, JRebel for Android has a Free version as well as an Enterprise version. Today we’ll take a look at the features that come with the Free version. More specifically, how it allows you to speed up your development flow.
