What does Trial offer?
WaveMakerOnline (WMO) hosts a Zero-DevOps trial version of WaveMaker Enterprise(WME) software, a Rapid Application Development (RAD) for responsive web and (beta) mobile optimized (Hybrid) App development. WMO provides a secure, private trial for your project. You can invite co-workers, designers (external agency, if used) as well as client (in case you are building the App on contract). WMO provides integrated experience that includes themes, templates (speed up commonly developed elements of your App), team collaboration, resource sharing (integration with source code control systems, such as your Github account), and single-click deploy (to your cloud account, such as Amazon AWS). Trial users are also offered, packaging mobile optimized Apps for use on devices (IOS or Android platforms) using Apache Cordova (PhoneGap service is built on this software). You can not only build apps that are invoked through tap on installed App on your device (phone or tablet), but also use popular device capabilities (such as camera, GPS, etc.).
What can I do when the trial period ends?
The trial period is for 30 days. During the trial period, one can invite as many others as appropriate to register at WMO and participate in your project.
After the trial period, you cannot continue developing and need to transition to a paid account. You will have 30 additional days to buy and reactivate your suspended account, after which you should not expect to login to WMO.
How can I pay for my WMO account?
Online payment for different plans (through credit card or Paypal account) is available. Either you could buy from inside WaveMaker Studio or outside through wavemaker.com website. In case your client or purchasing department is paying for your development, they could do so at the website and forward the payment confirmation mail (create app link) to you for use.
One can buy for multiple projects (one App each), if they desire.
The yearly subscription costs much cheaper than multiple monthly subscriptions, not only as a volume discount, but also the expected nature of software projects, that typically consist of a few months of intensive use (development phase) followed by much long, low activity work (maintenance phase).
What about hosting my App?
WaveMaker Online (WMO) gives you complete freedom to choose your hosting service, unlike other Platform as a Service (PaaS providers or clouds). We don’t mark up on your cloud or hosting charges with a pass-through, as you would directly open account with your hosting provider and pay bills directly, thereby utilizing offers and discounts offered by them due to constantly falling prices.
While that said, we make it convenient to deploy your application to hosting provider of your choice in two ways:
- Provide single-click deploy to popular cloud services (such as your account on Amazon AWS) and our Hosting partners (Please ask us, if you would like to see your cloud/hosting provider supported).
- Provide you a easy way to download a ready-to-deploy, packaged App (WAR file) that you can take out and host it anywhere you choose to.
Can I transition to a private installation (on-prem) of WaveMaker Enterprise?
Yes, we provide complete App portability between different editions of its RAD platform. So, an built using WMO (trial or paid) could be subsequently moved to WME on-prem installation. This enable easy trial (no installation hassle) online before making the purchase of WME.
