I am using JRebel for SAP Hybris projects,

and it saves a huge amount of time (since rebuilding and restarting the server in Hybris takes at least 20 minutes).”


Long SAP Hybris Redeploy Times Led to Less Productivity

During development in SAP Hybris, the build and redeploy times can be relatively long, which is why Portaltech Reply was initially interested in trying JRebel as a solution. According to Filippo Maria de Rosa, technical architect at Portaltech Reply, the company’s Hybris developers spent approximately five minutes for each build to complete, as well as three to four minutes to restart. In a standard workday, this can be a very time-consuming process.

The Portaltech Reply team undertook a free trial with JRebel and experienced positive results.

Accelerating Project Time With JRebel

Based on the positive results from the trial, Portaltech Reply has made JRebel a standard tool for all developers. The company monitors usage to ensure that developers are working as efficiently as possible. Portaltech Reply reports an improvement in developer productivity of hours or even months per project. One client project saw 105 hours in productivity savings across the project in a single month.
