WaveMaker Introduces Visual AJAX for Mac

WaveMaker Visual AJAX Studio 3.2 Adds Support for the Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) and the Safari Browser

WaveMaker announced the release of Visual AJAX Studio version 3.2. The new version introduces a beta installer for Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) and full support for the Safari Browser, bringing WaveMaker’s drag-and-drop Java development to the Mac.

“WaveMaker's Visual Ajax Studio for Mac comes at a very opportune time,” said Jean-Louis Gassé, General Partner at Allegis Capital and ex-Apple executive. “Apple is gaining momentum in the enterprise and WaveMaker gives enterprise users an easy and visual way to build Web applications.”

“WaveMaker's visual tool allows new developers and talented HTML jockeys to build full J2EE Web applications with a few clicks—zero to CRUD (create, update, delete data) in five minutes or less,” wrote Peter Wayner, contributing editor to the InfoWorld Test Center, in an April 17, 2008 product review of WaveMaker Visual Ajax Studio. In the review, Wayner gave WaveMaker an overall rating of “Very Good,” including a score of nine out of ten for “ease of development.”

The WaveMaker Visual Ajax Studio lets users create database-driven Java Web applications without having to write complex code. Using WaveMaker, IT managers and the users they support can significantly reduce development time while enabling increased participation, feedback and collaboration.

“WaveMaker aims to be the visual builder of choice for Web 2.0,” said Christopher Keene, CEO of WaveMaker. “The Mac platform and Safari browser have become defacto standards in the open source community. By making Visual Ajax Studio available to Mac and Safari users, we can support our growing community of developers and better meet the requirements of our customers.”

WaveMaker Studio is an open source development toolkit that provides drag-and-drop development of Java Web applications. WaveMaker Studio brings rapid enterprise Web 2.0 development to the masses by eliminating the complexity associated with building, prototyping and deploying Web 2.0 applications that meet the security, architectural and data policies of IT managers. WaveMaker Visual Ajax Studio is available under the GNU AGPL version 3 open source license, as well as a WaveMaker commercial license.
