  • UX, ease of development and deployment, support team excellent
  • Fast, lightweight and flexible. Easy to adapt to any hosting situation or app store.
  • It is fast compared to other players in aPaaS space, feature rich and efficient. Its took only weeks to create a Leave management software.
Cons
  • High Cost;Need Java Server
  • The lack of other models of licensing, example: license only for web development - with a lower price ;)
  • Wave maker can get really expensive, particularly for a start up business like ours. Hope they come up with a better pricing model
  • Hope there is a special pricing which is more friendly to small startup like mine :) and introduce more prefabs especially in area of payment gateway.

We undertook a trial of the product based on online reviews and articles. From a UX point of view and meeting the need for 98% codeless programming Wavemaker is extremely well designed and implemented. The learning curve is not too steep, although online materials arent as user friendly as the product interface, and within a month we had built our first fully functioning app (reasonably complex) and had gone through UAT and deployment, incredible speed considering from a standing start. The support team were incredible, very responsive and helpful. Then towards the end of the trial we contacted the sales team to purchase the monthly developer licence mentioned on this and other sites, unfortunately this option was withdrawn from the market and that the current pricing model is an eyewatering per month per application! This price is justified as it included AWS hosting, bearing in mind a medium AWS EC2 instance cost roughly per month, this clearly points to wavemaker withdrawing itself from the SME market only being interested in very large enterprises running apps that would need XLarge AWS instances. In short excellent tool, but unless you are looking at hosting an expensive bill anyway not really worth undertaking the trial. UX, ease of development and deployment, support team excellent

With WM, you can develop a entire web application in days, with all the robustness and Security of Java and with the ease of Drag & Drop.We like: The Platform which WM is based (Development with Java for Web) and its User Interface (Drag & Drop). Today, the web development on Java is complex, with multiple frameworks, patterns, annotations, configurations, XMLs and so on. With WM, all of this is abstracted from you, allowing you to put focus on the development of the business needs, reducing dramatically the development time.

Wavemaker is the ultimate development platform, comparing to open source

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

This platform is most hidden from anywhere in Google search. When you're looking for website, or software development, you come across a patchwork of tools which are haphazardly used to create a workflow. Anything from database schema tools, front end, back end, security all require a tremendous amount of time and effort. Our case use was creating a video sharing service. We analyuzed WordPress, Drupal, and many others which worked with AWS, CloudFront. The primary reason for choosing Wavemaker was we did not need to install anything, or rely on the multitude of dependencies like in WordPress or Drupal plugins and modules. We wanted to create a custom application but we had little time and budget. We went through many RAD (rapid application development) environments which lacked standardization of libraries like jQuery, HTML5, or even multi platform support like iOS, Anddroind and web. We tried everything and virtually every language including PHP. We realized we wanted to work with Java because of its vast libraries which are mature and time tested. With Wavemaker we were using Java but without being stuck in a boilerplate nightmare or manual coding. With wavemaker, we defined our database schema. Then with a very intuitive GUI were able to construct the various screens with this data and make a very quick but fully functioning prototype with fully aesthetic control, and fully responsive. We were able to configure security, users, role, and permissions very thoroughly right out-of-the-box with any additional Java libraries or customizations. If you're familiar with WordPress, or Drupal, then you know that coming to point of a projects require a host of third party add-ons creating the dependency and update process that is perpetual. Java and Wavremaker rarely needs so many updates if at all every few years. While open source and its many varieties claim to be FREE in cost, and ease of development, as well as ease of usage by end users, after looking at Wavemaker, this is far from the truth. The initial cost of open source projects maybe free, but to develop anything of value and enterprise grade is very costly and filled with hurdles. Wavemaker includes everything one could need to create robust applications for the browser, iOS and Android by automating the most routine tasks and reducing the need to code Java by more than 80%. If you must use Java, and I suggest you do, Wavemaker is it.Ease of use. Every tool imaginable on other open source solutions requiring a plugin or module are already available. The database schema tool is far beyond other third party tools. The GUI form building, data linking, and aesthetic control are that of a desktop app. The level of sophistication is above just rapidly developing and app. Wavemaker is also a very sophisticated IDE for Java. The list of Wavemaker features and uses is beyond the scope of this Capterra entry. Coming from the world of WordPress and Drupal, I have ditched them both in favor of Java and Wavemaker.

Wavemaker has great customer support (fast response and step by step guidance) which is the major reason I decided to subscribe a plan. A true RAD platform, yet it provides flexibility for complex coding. A cloud platform allow me code anywhere at anytime.

I'm using WaveMaker for almost an year, and despite the incredible easy to use RAD for Web and Mobile application, seems some lack of support, sometimes we need to send more then onde email to receive feedback. For other hands the product is very easy to use and also simple to release, despite that uses Java as background technology, I assume someday will be able to release also in NodeJS or other server platform.Easy to use;Easy to Deploy; Widgets

Radically change the entire process of building apps

Review Source: Capterra

Wavemaker is a boon for startups like us as it helped us build prototypes quickly and effectively. It enabled us to test some of the most difficult potential parts of the system early on in the life-cycle. Finding problems earlier in the life-cycle rather than later was a key benefit. The earlier a problem can be found the cheaper it is to address. It uses wysiwyg visual builder that allows quick app building, and hence for prototyping, the business analyst could directly get it done. The best part is that it is not just for prototyping, we later on went ahead and built upon the prototype to build a full fledged enterprise app. We had an option to pick from a huge bag of themes and templates (for both mobile and web). Also had an option to extend the platform for our customised needs. The first prototype we built was developed in less than week instead of 20+ days as estimated initially.

Development speed and less bugs on final developed application.The speed we have from concept to product is paralleled only by much more expensive tools like IBM VisuaAge, currently available only to high end risc workstations. The support is by large the best part in WM. The support team is always solicit and ready to pursue and provide any need for either support or information on how to do things with the tool.

WaveMaker lets us build prototypes quickly and allows us to utilise existing client data easily. This allows us to focus the client's attention on the prototype without distraction. Applications can be developed and deployed fast, taking the grind out of the repetitive tasks allowing us to get on with the value adding aspects of the application development process. Fast, powerful and straightforward.

My Experience with this product is that it is outstanding. If its all about speed and accuracy then I give Wavemaker 10/10. The Wavemaker Studio product is very professional and well worth the cost of a paid subscription. Support is always prompt and the engineering support team get my issues resolved quickly. Overall I would not bother looking anywhere else for a product that does what Wavemaker does. All their claims on their website are accurate!.Fast, lightweight and flexible.

RAD Platform - hype or real?

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

I had been looking for many years for a platform/framework that would satisfy my need for developing web based and mobile applications. I tried the usual Deamweaver, Embarcedero, Telerik platfoms and none of them lived up to the hype of RAD. I had used Wavemaker (5, 6) many years ago when it was open source and was surprised when they changed to a subscription based pricing model last year. I decided to kick the tires with an evaluation last September... and now I'm a paying customer. My proof-of-concept and proof-of-RAD was based on my skills: 1) I am a quick study wth programming languages & databases but don't have the depth of knowledge 2) I don't have the mastery of Javascript & CSS that is fundamental to modern UI's 3) I did not want to break the bank 4) I needed a single platform for web / mobile development (a single codebase is still a dream) I was pleasantly surprised by the rich feature set baked into Wavemaker and even though it's not perfect - the support staff is willing to work with you on issues that are not inherently intuitive or doable - it's worth paying for. All in all I am satisfied with the product.The platform is hosted and updated regularly. The features are complete from DB design, import schemas, query, procedures, web services, UI widgets and plain old javascript provide all the tools in a central development environment.

Hi everybody, We would like to give our personal review about WM platform. Months ago we were struggling with the choice of a RAD platform to choose in order to speed up our developing process. We tried many of them with similar architecture, but since we had experiences in the past with the community edition, after a long talk with sales' manager, we ended up buying a licence with WM. From our point of view this platform it's a great combination for nowadays developers, it allow us to manage the source code in order to personalize as much as we can the code, but at the same time it offer so many options that reduces incredibly the amount of time spent for each project. Support is great, through email and directly from the Online Studio's chat. We had the need of sending several questions and we always had a fast and kind feedback. Plaftorm is being updated often and the road map seems to be very interesting for the future,we hope that small business we'll always be in WM's plans(Even though rate plans seems to be going just for enterprise) PROs: Architecture,Easy of Use,Support CONs: Documentation The only point in which we would work more is the documentation, there's a lack of some usefull information. It would be very nice to have a community in which users can share their questions and their purposes. WM should work on this. Anyway we are really satisfied of our choice. Great product for the value, Thanks again, GeoDataLab Staff.
