There's a lot of "Made for Windows"/"Made for Mac" debating going back and forth here.

I have to agree, this application doesn't have a Mac "feel". It doesn't flaunt any of the feeling, ease of use, etc. that we've come to expect from Mac.

Today we can video chat from our phones. We can design websites in the blink of an eye that are aesthetically pleasing and fully functional. We can create virtually anything. Photoshop designs are outstanding driven by power beyond power.

There really is no reason this can't improve. Everything can improve. I'd love to see this turn into something that works as easily as something like RapidWeaver, iWork, iLife, etc.

If you can do websites that quick and they please clients with a great (original) gui and design, functional (as in are profitable, have SEO, etc.) I'll pay you to do sites for me. Surely, a blink of the eye will only cost like 10 bucks a site, right? Hahaha... gawd...

Testing the community 6.1.10GA version and saw that the development tool has improved with the latest versions of browsers as always very friendly saw a rapid Web application design that saves time and money to people in software development advanced rich GUIs based on usability and the latest technology to keep up any software quality, good thing to have great tools together as dojotoolkit, springframework and hibernate as well as json. but this is internal not want to talk about the wonders you see when with simple mouse movements can create these Web 2.0 applications that compared to other IDEs would take a long hours of development and maintenance not to mention that when you look that much code that bored.
Wavemaker finally made me forget the amount of code it generated in my application and of course too much syntax error that I spent hours working out.
Excellent part of integration with different databases ... it makes me too much homework.
So far I saw that has a good track by positioning the mac users in the most downloaded tool development.
Of course not everything is as I'd like ... I hope they can improve that part of the studio in the sense of being more intuitive and fast as the other popular IDEs like Netbeans and Eclipse I think this was achieved in time.
When I'm looking for a solution simply write in the forum and the magic is done thanks to the community is very active.

It looks like a nice application however it is not very mac friendly, wavemaker is mostly a windows product. I tried using there tutorial and got stuck at the importing the database part, in there tutorial they show you how to do this in windows, but not on a mac. Even after some research on the forums showing how another user did it I still can't do it.

Most of our developers work on Macs, so trust me, this is not an issue of Windows-centricity. Over half of our community is on the mac - chances are very high someone has run into the same problem and can help you at dev.wavemaker.com

Speaking as a WaveMaker developer, I've been using apple computers since I got my first apple 2 plus back in the 80s. I'm the senior engineer in charge of front end development, and all front end development that I do is on a macintosh (with the occasional help from Parallels).

Unfortunately, I am not the tutorial writer, that job was in fact done by a windows users. Because after all, we are not building this to run on only one platform.

Regardless of platform, you will find me, others at wavemaker and many in our community answering questions on the forum, so if you can't find your answer, post! And if you point us at the tutorial instructions that aren't working, we do have people whose job it is to update and correct tutorials, and I'd be delighted to send more work their way ;-)
