  4. 5. <ul><ul><li>Easy to use platform to build web apps: Web Fast </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Generates pure Java web application: CIO Safe </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>One-button deployment: Virtualization-ready </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Services architecture: The face of SOA </li></ul></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>When to use WaveMaker: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Rapid Application Development projects </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Form-driven database apps </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Front end “face” for SOA architecture </li></ul></ul><ul><li>When NOT to use WaveMaker: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Complex transactional systems (traditional J2EE) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Complex workflow (traditional BPM) </li></ul></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>WaveMaker applications are based on </li></ul><ul><ul><li>industry standard </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>open source technologies including:Spring (Java server), DOJO (Ajax widgets), Hibernate (database access), JAXWS (web services), JSON-RPC (client/server communication) and Acegi (security). </li></ul></ul>
  7. 8. <ul><li>Java Services : Integrate existing Java code. </li></ul><ul><li>Web Services : Connect with web services created using WSDL, REST or RSS. </li></ul><ul><li>Databases : Connect to almost any relational data source and import schema. </li></ul><ul><li>Security : Use LDAP, database security, rolebased access controls and single-sign on solutions. </li></ul><ul><li>Flexible Deployment : WaveMaker Studio creates standard WAR _les that can be deployed to any JDK 1.5+ Java Server. </li></ul><ul><li>One-click Cloud Deployment : Applications built in WaveMaker Studio can deploy directly to EC2. </li></ul><ul><li>RightScale Integration : For multi-server deployments, WaveMaker integrates with RightScale's cloud management platform . </li></ul>
  8. 9. <ul><li>WaveMaker Visual Ajax Studio : An intuitive, browser-based, WYSIWYG visual builder for rapidly assembling web applications. </li></ul><ul><li>One-Click Widget & Template Publishing : Turns any WaveMaker page into a widget or template for reuse in projects. </li></ul><ul><li>Enterprise-Ready Data Widgets : Pre-built templates & Ajax components assist in building a rich user interface in any browser without writing code. </li></ul><ul><li>Live Forms : Create CRUD database forms with a single click. </li></ul><ul><li>Live Layout : Preview live data within the Studio. </li></ul><ul><li>And more...Charting Widgets, Diagnostics, Context-sensitive Help, Type Validation Flags, Resource Manager </li></ul>

  14. 16. <ul><li>Hibernate usage can be a potential performance bottleneck. </li></ul><ul><li>When creating or editing the table structure extra care is needed since all the data in the database can be lost. </li></ul><ul><li>The modification of the data model incurs another import of the entire data source – in the development phase this can mean serious headaches. </li></ul><ul><li>Does not support RPC/encoded style WSDL -> not all WSs are supported. </li></ul>
