I have been lurking around the WaveMaker Development community for a while now. But It never occurred me to tell others about it. But the fact that they released the WaveMaker Visual Ajax Studio™ version 3.1.1, it is time to tell. It is a drag and drop assembly of scalable, web-applications using Ajax widgets, web services and databases. Trust me it was never easy for moi, to do those Ajax stuff, (look at this blog) ;0
If you want one more reason, there is a offer for 1GB Flash drive if you get through the tutorial and answer some questions.
Here is the company press release.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - February 27, 2008 - WaveMaker™ today announced the release of its WaveMaker Visual Ajax Studio™ version 3.1.1 for building Enterprise Web 2.0 applications. WaveMaker’s Visual Ajax Studio lets users create database-driven Ajax Web applications without having to write complex code. New WaveMaker features significantly reduce development time while enabling increased participation, feedback and collaboration.
“WaveMaker is introducing a new era of point and click Web 2.0 development,” said Christopher Keene, chief executive officer at WaveMaker. “For the first time, mere mortal developers can build Java Web applications. We see this as a huge market and the first credible alternative to ASP.NET for casual application developers.”
WaveMaker Visual Ajax Studio 3.1.1 now offers automatic form generation which reduces the time required to construct a form-based Web application to just seconds. This new feature treats forms as reusable widgets, making it easier to migrate from legacy client/server applications, such as Microsoft Access, Lotus Notes and Oracle Forms, to a standards-based, Ajax Web application. With WaveMaker, developers and IT managers can embrace innovative Web 2.0 technologies while adhering to the architectural, security and data policies of the CIO.
Additionally, the WaveMaker Visual Ajax Studio 3.1.1 and the WaveMaker Rapid Deployment Framework 3.1.1 are now available under the open source GNU AGPL version 3 license as well as a WaveMaker commercial license. With the addition of the AGPL license, WaveMaker continues its commitment to open source and open standards, eliminating vendor lock while enabling developers and enterprises to choose the license that best meets their needs.
New features of WaveMaker Visual Ajax Studio 3.1.1 include:
- Automatic Form Generation creates Web-based forms from a database table in a matter of seconds
- Extensible Palettes allow developers to add custom widgets to a palette within the Studio
- Developer Community Registration is now built into the Studio
- Dual license policy offers developers and enterprises the choice of an open source license (AGPL v3) or a commercial license
- DB2 is now a tested and supported database
