WaveMaker is shipping an upgrade to its popular open source development tool that allows devs to build and deploy sleek, snazzy Web 2.0 applications with a handful of mouse clicks - and no coding.

Applications created using WaveMaker Visual Ajax Studio 4.0 deploy as standard Java WAR files to Java servers such as Apache Tomcat or IBM WebSphere, according to company documents. With no proprietary code or languages involved, WaveMaker applications easily meet CIOs' architecture, security and data policies.

"WaveMaker is hands down the fastest way to build and deploy Ajax applications," said Chris Keene, CEO of WaveMaker, in a statement. "Web developers can use our visual studio to build point and click web applications without having to know a single Web 2.0 acronym."

WaveMaker Visual Ajax Studio 4.0 includes these features:
  • Data-aware forms enable a developer to build a form to create, read, update and delete database information with a single click.
  • Developer can undo any number of page designer changes within the browser-based WaveMaker visual studio.
  • Developers familiar with Apple's XCode will find WaveMaker's MVC and binding interfaces familiar and fast.
  • Developers can choose to install either the PostgreSQL open source database or EnterpriseDB's Postgres Plus distribution, as part of their WaveMaker installation.

    WaveMaker Visual Ajax Studio is available under the GNU AGPL version 3 open-source license, as well as a WaveMaker commercial license. It is the first open-source development studio that runs in a browser, allowing ISVs to embed WaveMaker as a customization tool within their SaaS applications, company execs said.
