How well does JRebel play with IBM RAD and WAS?

When running WAS from RAD on my local PC in debug mode will JRebel perform the hot redeploy for all changes and give me back the large chunks of my life I lose to the constant republishing of EAR files?

If so, are there specific instructions for integrating JRebel with RAD/WAS?

Are the class files instrumented in any way when JRebel is part of your dev setup?

Regards

Paul

JRebel Eclipse plugin is suitable for installing into RAD. JRebel itself supports WAS quite well. I suggest you take a look at step-by-step tutorial on how to get started with RAD/WAS and JRebel. There's also a recording available of a dedicated webinar session.

Yes, to make the classes capable for reloading, JRebel instruments the classes with the required pieces of code. Also, the plugins for frameworks generate special hooks into the frameworks in order to trigger re-initialization when needed.
