    "Very powerful yet not for newbies"

    August 14, 2011  |   By slamtilt

    Version: WaveMaker 6.3.2

    Pros

    Very powerful software

    Cons

    Wait until you try to load 3rd party js files, the nightmare starts.
    Not for newbies though

    "Outrageously simple yet overwhelmingly powerful!!"

    October 11, 2010  |   By Van_Gogh_in_Nuenen

    Version: WaveMaker 6.1.10

    Pros

    Visual, drag and drop, sound security, standard java output, 15,000+ community, growing enterprise client list, very responsive technical support.

    Cons

    Still looking...none of major note at this time. Will report back over time as my involvement with the product increases.

    "Kick starts the the novice w/o hindering the expert."

    October 11, 2010  |   By cvconover

    Version: WaveMaker 6.1.9

    Pros

    The generated Spring/Hibernate layer makes server side Java business logic a cinch, and the Dojo client side removes the complexities of AJAX and allows you to just create your UI with simple DnD and add presentation logic to intuitive widget events.

    Cons

    Global CSS customizations are a bit cumbersome in the current version, but the forth coming version (6.2.x) promises a well-tooled custom CSS theme template creator.

    Summary

    I've had the opportunity to use the product to create many large and complex enterprise applications. I've been able to use WaveMaker to build apps as simple as an internal for project time tracking with less than 200 lines of client side code in only a couple days to enterprise applications with several developers building web applications with dozens of pages requiring real-time language translation, reporting, tablet-based computing, database synchronization, message queue integration, web cam and signature integration.

    WaveMaker's generation of Spring and Hibernate provide a significant jump start for the casual and advanced server side Java programmer to implement sophisticated server side business logic when it is required.

    The Studio's DnD drop UI builder is implemented so well, you soon forget that you are in a browser-based development environment. The Studio makes it easy to get started with the Dojo toolkit for the novice JavaScript developer. And for the more advanced script developers, the full power of Dojo is at your disposal.

    And the complexities of Java web application deployment and management are minimized by the Studio. Your application is compiled and a WAR or EAR file is generated and deployed to your target application server with the click of a button from within the Studio.

    Whether you are a seasoned web application developer or just getting started, WaveMaker is a great tool to get it done in less time.

    "Easy to use drag and drop functionality"

    October 11, 2010  |   By gdusane

    Version: WaveMaker 6.1.9

    Pros

    - Standards based
    - Gives me a framework to work with instead of reinventing the wheel for my projects

    Cons

    - Needs a better code editor for Javascript

    Summary

    - Growing community which helps me with not only Wavemaker issues but any Java or Hibernate problems I run into as well..
    - Highly extensible (it's easy to use for beginners but at the same time does not limit more experienced programmers)

    "Easy great looking, standards based, dojo, java apps"

    October 10, 2010  |   By calceilidh

    Version: WaveMaker 6.1.9

    Pros

    The Studio makes it super simple to get a good looking dojotoolkit browser client with a spring server backend up in running in no time with no coding

    Endless possibilities if you don't mind doing some coding

    Cons

    Trouble finding a good java app hosting provide, deployed to AMI on EC2 instead.

    Summary

    WaveMaker does the "heavy lifting" of getting an app up and running. It is really impressive just how much it does when you get to looking at the app. The visual studio is easy to use and can configure a fair amount of an app without code. Since you get a well designed, open source app; hand coding things you can't do visually is straightforward.

    "Excellent development tool based on standard framework"

    October 10, 2010  |   By wmleego

    Version: WaveMaker 6.1.9

    Pros

    Power Builder like drag-and -drop based tools helps non-java-experts be able to develop complex application.

    Cons

    Not found noticeable cons yet but will update this section later

    Summary

    I have never seen any thing easier to use than this. It is not only very instrumental for developeing prototypes but also good for production-level real applications.

    "Lets anyone (and I mean anyone) build web apps"

    July 23, 2010  |   By ctkeene

    Version: WaveMaker 6.1.9

    Pros

    WaveMaker made it extremely easy to build a web-based asset management application, especially compared to MS Access. We had the entire MS Access system ported and in production in 4 weeks of part-time work by one guy (me!)

    Cons

    No built-in report writer so I used BIRT

    Summary

    If you are looking for an easy way to build web apps, try WaveMaker!

    "Check out WaveMaker for building a quick, simple webapp"

    July 23, 2010  |   By born2code2

    Version: WaveMaker 6.1.9

    Pros

    They have a browser based drag-and-drop designer for rich internet apps, and the backend is 100% Java.

    Cons

    No support for php

    Summary

    Developers who are unsure how to be extremely productive while harnessing web 2.0 technologies should look at WaveMaker. I personally have not seen such a well - designed web-based application tool with such a vibrant community of open source developers before. WaveMaker is, in a word, amazing.

    "confusing array of horizontal zones"

    February 7, 2009  |   By Lord_Glorfindel

    Version: WaveMaker 4.0

    Pros

    don't know - couldn't really get into it

    Cons

    only from the perspective first time, short time user, and having used several other good Web site creation apps (free and retail), this comes across as not for a novice for sure and not very appealing to veterans.

    Summary

    it is supposedly free, give it a shot
