Is this link correct: WaveMaker Visual AJAX Studio for the Ajax in Practice book? It points to something else I would say!

WaveMaker is a visual builder that runs in a web browser for building Java web applications.

Think of it as a cooler, open version of MS Access for the web:
  • Cooler: because you can build Java apps with Javascript front ends with minimal coding and *no* lock-in
  • Open: because WaveMaker is open source and the apps it creates can be opened and edited in any Java IDE + run in any Java server

  • We are introducing WaveMaker to JavaRanch to promote WaveMaker as an easy and highly productive way to kick-start your Java web development efforts. We are looking for your feedback in particular on whether WaveMaker is helpful in 2 areas:
  • Automate Hibernate mapping: WaveMaker creates the object-relational mapping automatically when you create or import a database in the Wavemaker studio. You can also define Hibernate views and Hibernate join queries in Wavemaker's visual builder and then have the Java automatically generated.
  • Automatic Javascript UI: WaveMaker creates custom enterprise data widgets for each table in your database schema. You can build a UI by combining these custom widgets with standard widgets like radio buttons and sliders using WaveMaker's drag and drop UI builder.

  • Please try it out and let us know what you think!

    WaveMaker is an IDE that helps you build the whole app: Java server backend, JavaScript front-end.
