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:

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.
