SAN FRANCISCO—December 09, 2008—WaveMaker™, the leading visual development platform for web applications, today announced WaveMaker Cloud Edition. WaveMaker Cloud Edition is the first open source, integrated development environment (IDE) for cloud computing. WaveMaker Cloud Edition lets anyone quickly build great-looking web applications that deploy to the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud™ (EC2).
"WaveMaker eliminates proprietary lock-in for developing cloud applications," said Christopher Keene, CEO of WaveMaker. "Now anyone can quickly and easily create and deploy web applications on-site or to the cloud."
With WaveMaker Cloud Edition, developers use a visual, drag and drop studio to create full business applications in a browser without needing to install any software onto the desktop. Because WaveMaker Cloud is hosted by Amazon EC2, deploying applications to the cloud has never been easier.
"WaveMaker is changing the dynamics of cloud computing by bringing to market an open, Java environment that's easy-to-use and delivers maximum deployment flexibility," said Roger Sippl, industry veteran and founder of Sippl Investments.
Continues Keene, "WaveMaker Cloud Edition also provides an excellent way for any Java ISV to modernize and SaaS-enable their applications."
Now Java ISVs Can SaaS-Enable Their Applications
WaveMaker Cloud Edition is the ideal SaaS-enablement solution for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) who use Java. WaveMaker Cloud provides the complete package of features necessary for an online application, including:
A Rich Ajax client based on Dojo
A Multi-tenant studio which can be embedded into an ISV's application, enabling easy self-service for end users
Scalable Java server architecture based on Spring and Hibernate
Easy integration of existing Java code, web services, enterprise security, existing databases
"WaveMaker's approach to visual development makes it easy to build and deploy web-based business applications," said Raven Zachary, Contributing Analyst, The 451 Group. "With the launch of WaveMaker Cloud Edition, they are introducing an open source solution that brings easy development and deployment to cloud computing."
