Restart Times Become an Obstacle for Digital Economy Solutions

In the course of developing an eCommerce solution for their client, the DES team needed to make frequent changes to the application on the fly.

Whether that meant introducing new variables, signatures, or methods, the team needed to restart the application to see if the change had the desired effect on the application.

But waiting on restarts to check those changes was having a significant impact on developer productivity.

Finding a Java Productivity Solution

With project deadlines looming, the DES team needed a way to speed up their development efficiency without hiring additional developers. A collaborator on their project mentioned JRebel as a high-ROI productivity solution, and the DES team immediately saw that JRebel would be a great fit for his team.

After getting budget approval, the DES team integrated JRebel into their development process with the JRebel IntelliJ plugin. 

The team didn’t experience any issues during implementation. And, because they were using the JRebel IntelliJ plugin, their team was able to quickly activate and use JRebel via the IDE.

Digital Economy Solutions Saves Time With JRebel

With JRebel integrated into their development process, the DES team was able to skip application restarts and see their changes immediately. That meant more time focusing on their project, and less time spent waiting on application restarts.
