LiveRebel delves deeper into Continuous Delivery world

ZeroTurnaround teams up with Atlassian for Bamboo-LiveRebel plugin

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 in the form of a LiveRebel Bamboo plugin, thanks to the guys from 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. Melding the continuous integration functionality of Atlassian's Bamboo with the wonders of LiveRebel's rethinking of automated application deployment, you get pure DevOps harmony.

Oliver White goes on further to discuss the benefits of this union:

Bamboo is used to check out source code, build, package and test new application versions. LiveRebel comes into play a step later, deploying and updating the running applications with the just-built version. LiveRebel automates the application deployment process, and lets users choose between update methods, including instant hotpatching without breaking user sessions, something yet to be seen in the market.

So basically, you can go from deployment to continuous updates of your Java EE applications in rapid time. Still somehow not convinced? Check out the video below...

LiveRebel's come a long way in a short amount of time since it arrived this year. Once again Zero Turnaround's mantra of pushing the boundaries continues. We're just praying for more Atlassian plugin tieups now! Great work by both companies. To learn how to utilise this wonderful plugin, check out this handy Getting Started Guide.
