I followed the JRebel tutorial and read the manual.
I made sure On Frame Deactivation is set to "Do Nothing"
I generated the rebel.xml.
I start the web server with JRebel debug mode.
The server starts showing that JRebel started too; however, it doesn't seem to be monitoring anything.
When I edit a class in IDEA and hit save, nothing happens. No log messages, no popup. And the class is still the old version in the server. It only changes when I manually select Reload Changed Classes. But I'm not sure if that's JRebel or the JVM hotswapper.
My rebel.xml is below. It's located in the source root.
