ZeroTurnaround teams up with Atlassian for Bamboo-LiveRebel plugin
Two cutting-edge companies team up for a new plugin, melding together the powers of super deployer LiveRebel and CI tool Bamboo
It’s always good to see companies helping each other out,
combining collective minds to merge together two exciting products.
The latest in the long list of these cross-pollinated efforts comes

ZeroTurnaround and Atlassian respectively.
As detailed in a blogpost at ZT, this plugin is ‘pure
ball lightning (yeah, like Tesla-style)’ – and it sure looks it.

continuous updates of your Java EE applications in rapid time.

the boundaries continues. We’re just praying for more Atlassian
plugin tieups now! Great work by both companies. To learn how to
