JRebel 2019.2.0 is now available for download. It introduces support for Java 13, improved microservices support, added breadth to Apache Camel integration alongside bug fixes and updated support for frameworks and IDEs.
Java 13, the latest implementation of the Java SE Platform, is now compatible with JRebel. That includes the two new preview features, text blocks (shown below) and switch expressions.
Two of the big additions in JRebel 2019.2.0 include support for DropWizard and Thorntail. When combined with the already stout support for microservices through Spring Boot, this added support makes JRebel ready for action on microservices.
JRebel 2019.2.0, in addition to general improvements and bug fixes, has updated support for Tomcat, WebSphere Liberty, Jetty, Payara, tc Server, Hybris, KumuluzEE, RestEasy, DeltaSpike, and MyBatis-Spring.
Lastly, with Apache Camel becoming more of a mainstay in the integration framework world, we revisited and improved upon our existing support for Apache Camel. That means support for many common uses, like adding or re-configuring routes, consumers, and producers.
