“Software is eating the world,” said Netscape founder and tech investor Marc Andreessen. Line by line, hardware is being consumed by code, and Java is spoken by a massive army of hungry mouths.
However, since the programming language was introduced in 1996, developers have had to write Java code on their own machines and then upload their code to remote servers for testing.
The idea that would become a glass of ice water to coders in redeployment hell was born in Estonia in 2006. That’s when Jevgeni Kabanov found a way to address Java’s core problem – the redeployment bottleneck. His insight led to a start-up and two products that smart Java teams wouldn’t be caught without. In other words, magic happened.
Developers at thousands of companies around the world use JRebel to instantly view code changes without redeploying the application server.
The result? Happy coders writing and testing beautiful code. Happy customers enjoying time and money saved through all that beautiful, productivity-boosting code.
Today, ZeroTurnaround is the labor of love by a global team of 150+. The company’s go-to-market heart beats in Boston, Massachusetts, while our development feet are firmly planted (and rapidly growing) in Estonia, at two offices in Tallinn and Tartu. We also have a branch in Prague, Czech Republic.
We are dedicated to making developers lives better, and we now have over 65,000 active users at 5,200+ customers, including 36 of the Fortune 100, in 80+ countries.
DEVELOPERS SAYING REALLY NICE THINGS
We’re developers who make stuff for people just like us. Yes, our software is used by companies, from startups to well-known multinationals. But at their core, our products are consumer products. It’s a stroke of good fortune that our “consumers” happen to be other Java developers. You know, people like us. Here’s what some of them have said about life with the tools we’ve made.
WHAT THEY SAY
With JRebel, I am able to see code changes more or less in real time - JEE development is a joy once more!
I was attracted to JRebel because of its transparency, simplicity and efficiency. It's easy to set up and very nice to use!
The developers at BlackBeltFactory.com use JRebel and although I probably could have gotten it for free from the ZT guys, I wanted to pay for this fantastic product.
To whomever tells me 'I don't have time to lose trying to use JRebel', I would say 'You're actually losing time by NOT using it'
JRebel is a blast! After the 30-day evaluation version expired, I found it hard to code anymore :-) It was very frustrating developing the old way without JRebel. Thank you very much for this wonderful piece of software!
I see JRebel as this "missing piece" in the whole picture where we could see Java-stack not only as a stable, well-tested environment to build applications on but also as a rapid development environment.
Jrebel is one those small non-intrusive pieces of software that you just can't live without!
We’ve had some real OutOfMemory problems in our production environment for quite some time. Once I got XRebel up and running I noticed that our most used webapplication uses around 15MB/User session. By tuning a few JSF parameters I got the average user session from 15MB to 0,5MB.
Manual redeploys were drawing us crazy, tired and bored. Now development is fun again.
So far, everybody I speak to about JRebel is satisfied with it - frankly, I cannot believe nobody thought of JRebel before.
JRebel seems to be the only cost effective way to accelerate the compilation and startup of our projects, consisting of several EAR artifacts deployed on a JBoss App Server. We have been using it for a year, and my development team is very pleased with it.
#IntelliJ and #JRebel combined cost less than your consultant's daily wages, but will boost his productivity x10. Why hesitate ?
