Very nice initial release, still a few minor things have to be fixed. Very friendly and fast responsive developer. Like to see how this one develops in future releases. Switched completely over from my previous solution.

I would like to try this but it doesn't install - it hangs at 97.75% There are no support links anywhere on the site or in the installer. From the lack of response to questions here for almost a year, I guess the developer has lost interest. He still wants the money though!

This software mostly works, but support is non-existant. The developer just ignores support requests that he doesn't like. You have been warned.

I have the same problem as Jeg 0g. The creator of this software is not fair for selling an application that does not work.

I have installed uninstalled and re-installed several times and am unable to get Apache to run. It starts and runs for a few seconds and then stops I am using a macbook Pro and the only non stock standard thing is a Buffalo NAS box. The error log has two warnings and one alert the first warning concerns that the RSA Server certificate is a CA certificate and the second warning is another RSA Server CN where "eosgarden" does not match the server name. The Alert is: (EAI 8)node name nor servname provided, or not known: mod_unique_id: unable to find IPv4 address of "192-168-1-4.tpgi.com.au" I posted on the author BB and sent email without any response.

i was looking for a good environment to develop PHP 5.3 applications on OSX... the VirtualBox solution was nice.. but too complex and slow. then (within TYPO3 world) i discovered Webstart ... VERY WELL DONE PROJECT! the developer is very good.. it took me a few hours to buy the license.. the only issues i had to think about was the migrations of mysql db. the develoepr says webstart is already 10.7 ready.. so.. what do we need more? ah: the autoupdating of all components is fantastic! i really hope this project to become popular

I had used MAMP Pro before. I like this because the included modules are very easy to keep up-to-date and the software bundle looks very complete. The setup requires more work than with MAMP. I like this.

Months ago, I asked the developer of MAMP if support for FastCGI could be added. Never got a response and it was never added. I just made the very same request to the developer of WebStart, and he responded right away by saying that FastCGI would be added tomorrow (March 8, 2011) in version 1.0.4 !!!

Paid version is less expensive than MAMP Pro. Very responsive developer who seems dedicated to keeping this package up to date. (In fact, I suggested some kind of auto-update feature, and it appeared within 6 hours.) If you have a need for this kind of thing (ie MAMP or XAMPP etc) I'd strongly suggest you give this a go. Plus, he's gathered together a zillion open-source "companion" programs... I'm a happy camper.
