WaveMaker 6.5.0 RELEASE is available effective immediately.
The new integration with PhoneGap exposes the functions of a mobile device, for example: camera, address book, or GPS. WaveMaker packages the application into the PhoneGap Build format, making it easy to create native mobile applications for any mobile OS, including iOS and Android.
Native mobile applications built with WaveMaker are able to directly access web services, providing additional deployment models. Due to security concerns, most web applications direct all requests to single server. WaveMaker web applications follow this standard, using a Java/Spring server to control and delegate service requests. In addition to the standard web architecture, WaveMaker 6.5 supports XHR calls directly from the mobile application to REST services. See Four Architectures for WaveMaker Deployment.
The visual debugger is tailored to the needs of business developers. The WaveMaker debugger enables the developer to view the application’s behavior, including service calls, user events, and widget data bindings.
Now a business developer can build a mobile application without leaving a browser. In addition to the traditional desktop installation, WaveMaker is also available on Cloud Foundry as a hosted service. All you need to get started is a Cloud Foundry account. Register on Cloud Foundry using the promo code: cfwavemaker. Once you have an account use WaveMaker via wavemaker.cloudfoundry.com.
